Our Data Justice programming is rooted in the research of the potential and lived harms of Open Data, the industry of Big Data, and the swift onslaught of surveillance tech as they relate to our most vulnerable communities. We cultivate visions, practices, and recommendations for creating more consentful, equitable interactions with data for policy makers, community organizers, educators, and beyond.
