Social Change Data Commons
The California Community Foundation is developing Los Angeles County’s first comprehensive public library of open data, called the Los Angeles Social Change Data Commons (SCDC). SCDC will proactively curate and disseminate data stories, growing philanthropy and influencing public policy to increase LA County’s equitable share of resources for the most vulnerable communities. The rising profile of public open data can be a tool for reinforcing civic engagement and encouraging new perspectives into the issues and solutions facing those communities.

These stories will be aimed at funders, policy makers, data journalists and activists to influence their decisions and policies.
SCDC will create a resource to discover and analyze data sets, sources and resources; uncover connections and gaps in the available data; tell the stories behind it; share and discuss new data analyses, sources and opportunities; and inspire collaboration and advocacy to address L.A.’s most pressing challenges.
