Love Data Week 2023- Data: Agent for Change

Love Data Week is an international celebration of all things data. The theme of #LoveData23 is Data: Agent of Change. In the hope of inspiring you to use data for positive change, we’ve put together a list of sources with datasets that have been collected about social justice issues and marginalized groups. The list is not comprehensive but we hope it may be useful in thinking about data for change.
