This article serves as an introduction to the special issue of The Assembly, titled Imagining More Just and Equitable Education Research Partnerships. This special issue aims to share the breadth of knowledge and collaborative efforts across our institutions, as we reimagine and work towards transforming the field of education and Research Practice Partnerships to be anti-racist, anti-oppressive, and de-colonial. The idea for this issue of The Assembly  began as part of the 2021 RESHAPE Conference as part of a focused mentoring experience for graduate students and early career scholars. These articles seek to reimagine community research and offer possibility, inspiration, and connection for potential paths forward.
