Research and Data Analysis

Power-Shifting Research

The Research & Data Analysis team engages in innovative research designed to reveal racial inequities and shift narratives and power. We focus on providing relevant, rigorous, and actionable data for campaign development, policy formation, and initiative building. We highlight the issues affecting communities most impacted by systemic racial injustice in climate, education, civic engagement, and more. Our work is done in deep partnership with communities of color to create meaningful data. To connect with us, please contact Chris Ringewald, Senior Director of Research and Data Analysis, at
