Title:What is Under Heaven is for All: Using non-profit data for immigrant advocacy
Author(s):Kerr, Nathaniel Westlake
Contributor(s):Doussard, Marc; Fang, Fang
Subject(s):non-profit organizations
organizing tactics
geospatial modeling
Geographic Coverage:Boston, MA
Abstract:This project arose from 2 months of work over the summer of 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic. Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center (BCNC) hired me to assist with onboarding of a new fundraising staff member as well as research on community demographics and programmatic impact. As part of this work, I analyzed a dataset related to an income replacement program for local immigrant families affected by the COVID-19 lockdown. My capstone project attempts to build on this initial analysis with more detailed, geospatial modeling of this dataset paired with Census bureau data. This work highlights ways in which non-profit service data can be repurposed for advocacy, in keeping with historical community organizing efforts in Boston’s Chinatown.
