About the project

data_labe is a data and narratives lab run for and by the residents of favelas In Brazil. Data_labe enables people to understand the value of their data, collect it and engage in campaigns and policy processes to claim their rights based on data. Data_labe shows how enabling communities to work with data citizen-based can promote public policies and visibility for those otherwise marginalized in Brazilian society. We produce research, reports, journalism, training, and advocacy for eradicating racism, LGBTI+ rights, women’s lives, digital rights, and the dignified lives of the people living in Brazil’s peripheries.
