We’re excited to invite you to our upcoming Media Justice Salon, Big Data for Big Organizing: Reducing Harm and Advancing Justice Through Data, on March 14 from 1-2 PM EST!

Data is often presented as objective and unbiased, but it can negatively influence the public policy that affects the lives of poor people and people of color.
