Data Gives a Platform to People of Color


Learn about Data for Black Lives, a new “organization that compiles facts and figures to try to makes sense of black people’s individual and collective experiences as an act of social and political resistance.” Founders Yeshimabeit Milner and Lucas Mason-Brown aim to unite scientists and activists around solving issues of redlining, gerrymandering, police violence, and maternal mortality rates, and in doing so prevent data from being used against communities of color.
