data scientists and journalists meet to create timely and rigorous data journalism

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 in June 2017 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.

Stories we produce are published on our website, and publication on Medium

DC Data Journalism's first project is on Haitians leaving the United States to Mexico and Canada under the Trump administration. 

Data on, journos!
