With trust in government and experts (e.g., researchers) at historic lows,1 efforts that rely exclusively on these institutions to “use data to solve social problems” are unlikely to succeed. Too often government organizations and their research partners fail to identify and address issues of bias in data. Further, even if such issues are identified, these organizations are not equipped to repair trust with communities that have experienced harm. This body of work seeks to encourage shifts of awareness and practice, by centering racial equity and community voice within the context of data integration and use. Our vision is one of ethical data use with a racial equity lens, that supports power sharing and building across agencies and community members.
