BE
 THE
 EVIDENCE
 PROJECT
 
Be
 the
 Evidence
 You
 Want
 to
 See
 in
 the
 World…
 

 

  What
 is
 Our
 Mission:
 The
 mission
 of
 the
 Be
 the
 Evidence
 Project
 is
 to
 create
 awareness
 of
 human
 rights
  and
 social
 justice
 issues
 through
 research,
 advocacy,
 and
 education.
 Be
 The
 Evidence
 Project
 activities
  foster
  dialogue
  and
  action
  on
  how
  human
  rights
  and
  social
  justice
  can
  be
  realized
  in
  everyday
  and
  professional
 practice.
 
  Who
 We
 Are:
 The
 Be
 the
 Evidence
 Project
 is
 a
 collective
 of
 globally
 conscious
 researchers,
 practitioners,
  educators,
  policy-­‐makers
  and
  advocates,
  and
  concerned
  citizens
  whose
  non-­‐profit
  independent
  scholarly
 and
 creative
 ventures
 are
 designed
 to
 disseminate
 knowledge,
 values,
 and
 skills
 that
 will
 help
  improve
  the
  individual
  and
  community
  response
  to
  critical
  social
  issues
  and
  improve
  well-­‐being
  using
  ‘any
 media
 means
 necessary’.
 
  What
 We
 Do:
 Be
 the
 Evidence
 Project
 activities
 that
 involve
 research,
 education,
 and
 advocacy
 provide
  a
 vehicle
 to
 disseminate
 information
 to
 raise
 critical
 consciousness
 and
 the
 recognition
 of
 psychological
  sociopolitical
  contexts
  in
  which
  injustices
  can
  occur.
  Transforming
  society
  first
  entails
  transforming
  ourselves
  to
  become
  "be
  the
  evidence
  we
  want
  to
  see
  in
  the
  world".
  Through
  participation
  in
  self
  or
  project-­‐sponsored
  activities,
  we
  can
  help
  promote
  the
  achievement
  of
  a
  socially
  just
  world
  in
  which
  human
 rights,
 social
 justice,
 and
 well-­‐being
 are
 realized
 for
 all.
 On
 a
 daily
 basis,
 the
 lived
 reality
 of
 "being
  the
  evidence"
  challenges
  individuals
  everywhere
  to
  look
  inside
  themselves
  to
  identify
  and
  eradicate
  oppressive
 attitudes,
 thoughts,
 and
 practices
 towards
 self
 and
 others.
