This report showcases the monumental state-wide effect of the Massachusetts Community Income Tax Credit on the capacity of community development corporations. Built in Microsoft Power BI, this report required high-level data organization, joining several surveys into a relational database and translating a visualizing style guide into a custom Power BI template.

As part of a larger mapping and data visualization project for the National Network of Abortion Funds I designed and ran an interactive mapping workshop for 300 people at NNAF's National Organizing Summit in July of 2018. Split into four regions, members of local abortion funds worked with other people in their region to map collective power and related barriers to abortion access and abortion funding. The workshop was designed for regional network-weaving grounded in local data, and was the first step of a year-long data analysis and visualization process for the Network.

In the spring and summer of 2018, I co-coordinated a week-long environmental justice training and leadership development convening for forty youth organizers from across the country. My amazing team ran a selection process for applicants, adapted and wrote political education and organizing 101 training curriculum, fundraised $10,000 in participant scholarships, and coordinated site logistics and travel. West SPROG is a part of the Student Sierra Coalition's summer programming, and provides integral training to the next generation of youth environmental leadership.

In the spring of 2018, I co-ran the annual grassroots fundraiser for the Eastern Massachusetts Abortion Fund (EMA Fund). In a record-breaking year, we raised $85,080, blowing past our stretch goal of $75,000, and engaging a record number of donors. The median donation was just $25, with over 80% of the donations under $50. The fundraiser was a combination of online team-based fundraising using Classy, managing 67 individual fundraisers, and an in-person fundraising party with a raffle, silent auction, and abortion storytelling.
