Social Change Via Data Analysis

Juanita Sims Doty Foundation (JSDF) established a local and statewide policy agenda to eliminate the impacts of dehumanization on African American families. The Moriah Group partnered with JSDF to develop a parent and caregiver survey to identify barriers in public systems in Mississippi that may destabilize families and have negative impacts on their success and thriving. We also instituted a focus group protocol that contextualized the quantitative data obtained from the survey.
