Open data has become a huge resource for those in government, industry, and the civic sectors who want to understand, monitor, improve, and optimize cities and our government. In this workshop , we will work with NYC Open Data to visualize and analyze the data and create insightful, interactive maps with dashboards that allow users to later and better understand their city. As an added bonus, we will also give you the locations of the closest $1 pizza joints around every CUNY!

This workshop is designed to teach participants how to shape selected life experiences into well-crafted stories and share them with members of their communities and beyond. Since 1999, The Moth has been teaching the craft of personal storytelling, providing people with the tools to share stories that dissolve stereotypes and bridge divides. By elevating the individual experience, the Moth hopes to inspire confidence in storytellers and provide performance opportunities to people who are often under-represented and under-heard in mainstream media.

Let’s give a spit...about cancer. DoSomething.org is swabbing cheeks and registering people to be bone marrow donors to actually save lives! In fact, 70% of people who need a bone marrow transplant rely on a complete stranger for a donation - this stranger could be you. Beyond that, black people and other people of color have a much harder time finding a donor match. You can make a difference today.
