Detroit Digital Justice Coalition to present at Rutgers Representing the City Symposium

Oct 10, 2012

On October 19, the Detroit Digital Justice Coalition will participate in Representing the City: Technology Action and Change, a symposium being held at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ.

Jenny Lee (AMP), Lottie Spady and Victoria Goff (East Michigan Environmental Action Council) will represent the DDJC and the Detroit Future Programs on a panel with the Center for Urban PedagogyOpenPlans.orgMIT CoLab, and the Public Science Project.

Alongside these four impressive organizations, the DDJC will share our experiences navigating power and process in the collection, representation, and distribution of data in our city.  We will consider the questions: What is being measured? Who decides? How does this measurement shape the city? 

Following the panel, DDJC members will lead an interactive workshop, "How to Grow New Narratives" sharing how we used Twitter for participatory data collection and the creation of a counter-narrative, in the process of documenting deliverables for a federal grant.
