Visual Means

We are excited to announce that we have received an Express Newark Third Space Grant for our collaboration with Professor David Troutt, Director of the Rutgers Center on Law, Inequality, and Metropolitan Equity. Our project, “Toward Visualizing Equitable Growth in Newark and Beyond” will focus on creating data visualizations based on CLiME’s Displacement Risk Indicators Matrix (DRIM) in order to enhance sensemaking, insight, clarity and communication. The goal is to engage audiences, whether politicians or Newark’s residents, and enhance understanding of the factors at work in potential displacement, and to empower more effective self-advocacy and social action.
