We the People of Detroit Community Research Collective

In Detroit, data visualization and mapping is often used to support gentrification by organizations that are not accountable to the community. Activists, researchers and designers from We the People of Detroit Community Research Collective will share our work to reclaim data visualization by mapping connections between water shutoffs, school closings, tax foreclosures, and other policies that impact Detroiters. We will create a map together based on participant input.
