Data For Good

Data for Good is a technology enhanced social movement that aims to bring the power of data and data science to solving social problems. Volunnteers with data science and related skills work with nonprofits that are addressing today's most serious issues. This is an exciting new area of social change practice. There are interesting commonalities with civic technology, citizen science and data activism.
