On Saturday, about 40 community members from CASA, Black Leaders Organizing for Change, the No Boundaries Coalition, and Baltimore Votes came together at the University of Maryland-Baltimore campus for training to become Data Fellows who will administer the Blueprint for Baltimore survey.
This week, these Data Fellows will begin administering the survey by canvassing door-to-door, attending community meetings, and doing digital outreach. OSI-Baltimore has also connected with about 30 grassroots and community-based Community Partners who have agreed to distribute to their membership.
The training also included a panel discussion on Data Equity, with Tre Murphy of Black Leaders Organizing for Change and the Black Census Project (pictured with microphone), Morgan State University Professor and 2012 OSI-Baltimore Community Fellow Dr. Lawrence Brown, Julius Maina of the U.S. Census Bureau, Miriam McKinney of GovEx, and Kenneth Morales of Problem Forward.
