HRDAG’s Year in Review: 2023

This year at HRDAG we’ve been thinking a lot about how we work with our partners to create positive change in their communities.

In a year that’s felt violent and unstable, we’ve learned so much from our partners about resilience and patience. I hope that you are as inspired by our collaborations with them as we are by their capacity to imagine and work toward a better future.

Our 2023 year in review pays special attention to the massive dataset documenting 50 years of conflict in Colombia that we were able to make publicly available, the biases we found in family services in Pennsylvania, and police misconduct in several cities in the US. The report is available as a four-page PDF.

Once again, we’re so grateful to our funders and our advisory board for supporting us, and we’re honored to do this important work. I hope you enjoy the review! (Reviews from 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022 are available online, too.)
