LISC Chicago has been hosting an informal monthly gathering called Data Fridays since 2012, attracting self-described data geeks and regular people who share how they collect, analyze and present information about their work.
Jeff Bartow of Southwest Organizing Project talks about how information is related to organizing.
The sessions are at 3 p.m. on the second Friday of every month and typically attract a diverse group of beginner to advanced data users. The sessions are open to anyone interested in data and how it can be used to make neighborhoods stronger. Refreshments are served. All sessions are at LISC Chicago, 135 S. LaSalle St., 22nd Floor, unless otherwise noted.
