The UCLA Law Covid-19 Behind Bars Data Project is looking for volunteers to help us track and analyze COVID-19 infections and deaths in prisons and jails. You need not have a data science background; there is plenty of work for people with a range of skills. (But if you do have experience with data science or social media, please let us know.)
We welcome volunteers of all ages. We ask our volunteers for a minimum commitment of 4 hours a week for at least 6 consecutive weeks, but we are also open to alternatives. If you are interested in joining us, please email Danielle Flores at email@example.com, with your availability and a short description of why you want to volunteer with the Project.
The UCLA Law Covid-19 Behind Bars Data Project values equity and inclusion and encourages a diversity of candidates from various backgrounds to contact us. We especially welcome the participation of people who have been directly impacted by the criminal legal system.
