Lisa is Director, Marketing & Communications at USAFacts, a non-profit, non-partisan civic initiative aimed at making government numbers more available, accessible, and understandable to Americans.
While I’ve always viewed whatever product I was working on as being helpful, whether that was an easy photo-editor, a cheap flight to Vegas, or a quality down jacket, the level of “helpful” for a service like USAFacts is exponentially higher. This is the type of help that makes a material difference to our society, not just someone’s day.
USAFacts captures federal, state, and local government data from more than 90 different sources, brings it all together, visualizes it, and where we can, put it into unbiased context. We hope voters, policymakers, students, and journalists use this resource to ground our democratic debates in the same set of facts. This service is offered for free.
