Register Now!

On January 11-13, 2019, over 400 scientists, activists, and organizers will convene at the MIT Media Lab in Cambridge, MA for Data for Black Lives II. Over the course of a weekend, we will work together to realize the true power of data to build movements, shift power, and hold institutions accountable. Join us for panels ranging from: climate change and emergency response to reparations and workers rights, as well as action-oriented workshops, trainings, and a concert featuring Jamila Woods! Click here for the full agenda.

This year?s conference will feature an opportunity expo, where companies, grad programs, and data science boot camps can engage with conference participants. If your organization is recruiting and would like to be represented at the Data for Black Lives opportunity expo, please contact fellow@d4bl.org<mailto:fellow@d4bl.org>. Spots are limited!

We want to make sure that the cost of travel and attendance is not a barrier for anyone. In the spirit of Giving Tuesday, help us by sponsoring scholarships for students and activists.

We hope to see you in January!
