The Meme Styles Conversation
In 2015, Meme Styles founded MEASURE to promote the use of evidence-based projects and tools to tell real-life stories behind the numbers. As a catalyst for systems change, MEASURE has grown to a fully operational nonprofit social enterprise that provides free data support to Black and Brown-led organizations.
So far the organization has provided thousands of free data support hours to Black and Brown - led organizations. They are also responsible for strategic partnerships with the University of Texas, Texas Southern University and more with a goal of disrupting traditional research in exchange for BIPOC-led lived-experience protocols.
In 2021, Meme was named an MIT SOLVER for anti-racist technology in the United States and for the next two years has been awarded a fellowship by the Social Science Research Council.
