Resources for Data Science & Social Justice

This repository contains a collection of resources that I’ve gathered to facilitate a workshops on teaching statistics and data science with a social justice framing. It includes slides, Jupyter notebooks, publicly available datasets, and some recommended reading. My views on this topic are always evolving so please let me know if you find these materials to be either useful, or lacking; I’ll be grateful for suggestions.

The following books and articles have been really helfpul in framing the way that I think about talk about social justice and quantitative methods like data science, statistics, and algorithmic design.
