Meet our Growing Team June 1, 2022
Building upon solid team growth in the first quarter of 2022, we’re continuing to expand as we work to deploy an interactive dashboard product, launch a first-of-its-kind research and communications hub, and develop the datasets and roadmaps needed for our partners to mobilize pro-democracy coalitions.
