Using Data to Advance Racial Equity in Local Communities

Join experts from the Urban Institute and community-based organizations to learn more about innovative data strategies that successfully build agency, create opportunity, and advance racial equity in communities of color. We will discuss how data can shape, strengthen, and inform the racial equity work of grantmakers and other nonprofit organizations, using examples from Atlanta, Washington, DC, and other cities.
