Almost a year ago, you supported the efforts of our Protest Project Research Team by donating funds to purchase tablets (and cases) that expanded the team's ability to collect data at mass protests. The impact has been incredible. Upgrading from paper and clipboards to tablets has allowed our team to collect and process data in almost real-time, ultimately providing a better pulse on the movements that are shaping our country.
This morning, the project’s lead researcher, Dana R. Fisher, was featured on MSNBC's Morning Joe (and she mentioned the tablets!). Please follow the link below to view the segment: http://www.msnbc.com/morning-joe/watch/data-tracking-resistance-shows-movement-s-growth-1142623299946
