UCLA Data for Democracy in LA
To celebrate its 100th anniversary, UCLA has created Data for Democracy, a project for K-12 students to analyze and gather data on critical issues such as access to parks, jobs, and housing in Los Angeles. Each month, we will take up one of these issues and share charts, graphs, maps and other information from UCLA research centers. Classrooms will be able to use “Padlet,” an online tool, to discuss these ideas and share student work. In May 2020, students from across the city will have a chance to come to UCLA to talk with one another and UCLA researchers about what they have learned about inequality, opportunity and social change in Los Angeles.
Get started with Brief 1 about parks.
