"Great people and an interesting forum for discussing how to have an impact on important yet underreported social issues" - DJDC members survey
We bring together data scientists and journalists to create timely and rigorous data journalism.
We began as a way to connect the local participants in the Knight Center's Python for Data Journalists: Analyzing Money in Politics MOOC last June and continued as a community to get to know more people interested in data journalism around DC, and now worldwide, and produce consequential data journalism that helps identify the scale of an issue of importance to our times or has the potential of influencing policy. To this end, the group will actively explore avenues for publishing project outcomes.

The group is open to anyone interested in data science and journalism.
Data on, journos!
