Data Visualization for the Movement

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Data visualization can be a tool for communicating, mobilizing, and organizing within movements. We will explore the challenges of working with data on intersectional issues, identify open data sources, and walk through some examples of tools and strategies that can be used to visualize data. We will learn how to build powerful maps and charts using free tools. Participants will walk away with an understanding of how data visualization can aid their movement work as well as basic skills that can be used to produce visualizations.
