Center for Popular Research, Education and Policy (C-PREP) conducts participatory research, capacity building and policy with people who want to restore vitality in their communities. C-PREP addresses the external structural barriers of race and class that limit opportunity and the internalized barriers of fear, alienation and hopelessness that extinguish the human impulse to achieve self-reliance and the drive to create constructive change.
C-PREP brings a seasoned team of researchers, trainers, policy analysts and innovators to bear on social problems. C-PREP has deep experience working with low-income communities and people of color. Through knowledge, capacity and policy grounded in everyday reality, C-PREP delivers hope.
