Community Power building


Since 2019, Measure has provided over 3,000 hours of free data support hours to Powerful Black, Brown, and Indigenous-led organizations by helping them create community-led solutions, community impact metrics, and data collection plans. Although they felt more equipped to serve their community and get funding, they were still missing a place to:

      1. Tech solution to manage their data
      2. Relationships to further their mission
      3. Visibility of their great work
