What is The Data Squad?

The Data Squad was founded in 2019 to bolster the data analysis capabilities of state-based pro-democracy organizations via training and network building.

The Data Squad promotes the strategic use of data in public policy advocacy and encourages diversity and inclusivity in non-profit data management by preparing educational materials and conducting trainings on data management tools and practices directed at individuals from varied backgrounds, demographics and life experiences, and by serving as a hub to connect those individuals with tax-exempt non-profit organizations that promote democracy, works to expand access to the ballot box, advocate for social and economic justice, and organize for positive social change.

Why do we think this project is important? 

Democracy Fund Voice supports work to strengthen and expand the movement for an inclusive, multi-racial democracy with a focus on POC power and leadership. The Data Squad’s work contributes to change toward supporting and increasing the capacity of grassroots power building organizations.

How is Democracy Fund Voice supporting The Data Squad? 

In 2023, Democracy Fund Voice approved a one-year grant of $125,000 to The Data Squad.
