Civic Laboratory for Environmental Action Research (CLEAR) is a feminist marine science and technology lab. Our main goal is to conduct science and build technology that foregrounds values of equity and justice, particularly for populations that are negatively affected by plastic pollution. We engage in action-oriented research through grassroots environmental monitoring that emphasis that the process of research, as well as research findings, impacts the world. We focus on do-it-yourself, feminist, participatory, Land-based, and activist methodologies so research contributes to positive change to the environments in which we work and live.
