Social Justice in Numbers with Ida B. Wells

In light of the end of Black History Month, we’d like to celebrate Civil Rights leader Ida B. Wells for her use of data journalism and quantitative analysis to fight with facts against racial injustice. Her trailblazing use of data in combination with fearless advocacy and tireless reporting reminds us of the importance of sharing data and breaking down silos to empower social change and fight injustice.

We hope you’ll share with us how you engage with data to make communities better, stronger, and more equitable.
