Equity Center research featured in Charlottesville Tomorrow: Determined to Be Free

Equity Center Lead Data Scientist Michele Claiborn and Research Associate Sam Powers contributed to Charlottesville Tomorrow’s “Determined” series. Using the Equity Atlas platform, Dr. Claiborn and Mr. Powers compiled Charlottesville City Police Department records of street stops by CPD officers. The Equity Atlas allowed the detentions data to be visualized both spatially and broken down by race, showing clearly that disparities persist in city policing.
