    Research for the Front Lines is a new initiative, led by Dr. Jen Gobby, that connects grassroots communities and organizers on the front lines of the fight for environmental and climate justice in Canada with researchers with skills, time, and labour to offer. We establish and support research collaborations that contribute to resisting extractive, colonial capitalism and rebuilding just, flourishing alternatives. We'd like to acknowledge Keith Scott, Sara Adams, and Clare Kenny for their work on this research project.
