THE DATA BEHIND THIS

Police Funding Project
Since the death of George Floyd, police brutality in the U.S. has been brought to light. Countless incidents - where armed officers not only failed to perform their duties of protecting the citizens but actually abused their power over them - have increased the anti-police sentiment among the public. “Defund the Police” has become a popular slogan associated with the Black Lives Matter movement. As a part of the Data Strategy Fellowship Program led by ParsonTKO & TechSoup, we hope to use data to analyze the police funding issues in the U.S. and provide the public with our insights for the movement. Our goal is to provide people with more organized information to help them with their own analysis and understanding of the movement.
While the pandemic has a huge impact on all of us, it hits minority communities in a more drastic way. Click on the link below to support these communities in different ways.
