Hosted by New York University, Data Rescue NYC was organized by the Environmental Data and Governance Initiative (EDGI) in collaboration with the PPEHlab’s DataRefuge project. Here are links to background and news coverage. It was created as part of a decentralized effort including previous events in Toronto, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and elsewhere to secure federal environmental data in advance of the Trump administration’s large-scale efforts to dismantle environmental regulation. This work is urgent since the Trump administration has vowed to cull crucial data from its websites.
