You are invited to join the University of Southern California's Price Center for Social Innovation for a special introduction and demonstration of the new Neighborhood Data for Social Change (NDSC) platform. NDSC is a free, publicly available online resource that illuminates the trends, challenges and opportunities facing Los Angeles County neighborhoods. The platform helps tell the stories of L.A. neighborhoods through maps, charts, data analysis and storytelling. Through these components, NDSC helps community stakeholders track measurable change, improve local policies and programs, and ultimately advocate for a better quality of life within their communities. This program will also provide a demonstration of how foundations can use NDSC to support their grantmaking priorities.
