By using data visualization as a method of activism, Alumni Technology Resident Sam Lavigne will help you see data differently while making it accessible to all in this online workshop. This method will not only work as a help you consume data but make it more informative and useful to others in your community.
Date: This one-time online workshop meets on Thursday, December 3 from 7:00-8:00PM ET.
Audience: Open to all.
Materials: Participants will need a computer/phone with internet access, paper, and drawing utensils.
