How are data-driven systems affecting our community's ability to access basic human needs? In this interactive storytelling session with the Our Data Bodies Project, we will explore the experiences of individuals from Charlotte, Detroit, Los Angeles, and the AMC. We will examine connections and patterns so we can begin to imagine and develop creative tools and practices that will advance our communities from paranoia to power.
