Data for Black Lives

Data for Black Lives seeks to mobilize scientists around racial justice issues. It involves a group of activists, organizers, and mathematicians who are committed to the mission of using data science to create concrete and measurable change in the lives of Black people.

So far, 29-year-old Yeshimabeit Milner and 29-year-old Lucas Mason-Brown have built a network of more than 4,000 scientists and activists who are committed to using data to create measurable change in the lives of black people.

According to the founders, the advent of computing, big data and algorithms have penetrated virtually every aspect of our social and economic lives. Hence, these new data systems have tremendous potential to empower communities of color and that is the core of Data for Black Lives.
