Empowering Atlanta Neighborhoods to Use Data for Community Change

(Inactive) Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta   (Atlanta)

September 2011

 To help inform residents and engage them in neighborhood issues, the Knight Foundation has given a grant to the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta to connect residents to an extensive data hub and train them on how to add their personal stories, photos and videos of their communities. The hub, called Neighborhood Nexus, is a comprehensive information resource that empowers community leaders to enhance the quality of life in the Atlanta region. The Community Foundation hopes the online collaboration and in-person dialogue will transform decision making and empower citizens and leaders to lobby for and make improvements in their area.
