Data Collection and Reporting

Rapid data collection grounded in a community power-building approach produced data that directly informed state policy and an increased power base. This approach enables direct connection to immediate “downstream” needs in communities while simultaneously building collective systemic “upstream” analysis and capacity of community members and laying pathways to translation and implementation of research into policy.
