Protecting Democratic Freedoms With Omidyar Network
March 20, 2017

In light of recent rhetoric and policy in the U.S. targeting immigrants, refugees, people of color and other vulnerable groups, we're doing a call for proposals with Omidyar Network to bolster the efforts of organizations protecting these communities.

From helping organizations use data to better understand the impact of their programs, cut costs, better target resources or anticipate needs from their community, we can help with a variety of needs leveraging cutting edge technology and approaches.

If your organization is working to champion democratic freedoms and civil liberties in the U.S., we'd love to hear from you.

Learn more and apply by April 30th >

We'll match selected organizations with a team of data scientists to work together on a long-term project starting in June.

Reach out to magdalen@datakind.org with any questions.
