Mission Statement

Our mission is to democratize data to facilitate an empowered, productive, and equitable community. DataWorks was created in collaboration with the City of Durham, Durham County Public Health, Duke University’s Social Science Research Institute (SSRI), Durham County, United Way of the Greater Triangle, Duke’s Division of Community Health and the Triangle Community Foundation.

Description

DataWorks NC is a nonprofit based in Durham, North Carolina. We democratize data to facilitate an empowered, productive, and equitable community. Our priority is to benefit Durham’s communities of color, low income, and historical disinvestment and we do this through collaboration with neighbors, communities, nonprofits and local agencies that share goals of racial equity and community power. We facilitate community discussions and set the table for shared learning about topics like displacement, ownership, working, race and power. By listening, learning and collaborating alongside our partners we participate in the development of more equitable and restorative public processes - ultimately building a more complete and accessible pathway to community knowledge that is grounded in history.
