Partnership Announcement: African Futures Action Lab

Jun 13 2022 News

PARTNERSHIP ANNOUNCEMENT

Data-Pop Alliance is pleased to announce its partnership with The African Futures Action Lab. Together, we will co-develop a “Global Racial Inequality Dashboard” that will provide a transcontinental view of racial inequality and injustice through the collection of both qualitative and quantitative data. The resulting indicators and insights will aim to advance policy, advocacy and awareness raising efforts by civil society associations and policymakers to address structural racism and inequalities in selected countries, including where such data are not collected. The Dashboard will:

• Monitor racial violence and inequalities within and across countries in the Latin America and the Caribbean, Europe, and Africa
• Document demands for racial justice in those regions
• Highlight institutional actions taken to address these issues
• Fill gaps in state-collected data (especially in Europe) related to racial disparities and violence

It will leverage data from a wide variety of traditional and non-traditional sources, including existing datasets, reports from civil society organizations, legal documents, and social media to present a fuller picture of the effects of racism in an accessible and
actionable manner.
