  • Yeshimabeit Milner
    **Yeshimabeit Milner** is the founder and executive director of Data for Black Lives. She has worked since she was 17 behind the scenes as a movement builder, technologist, and data scientist on a number of campaigns. She started Data for Black Lives because for too long she straddled the worlds of data and organizing and was determined to break down the silos to harness the power of data to make change in the lives of Black people. Yeshimabeit has helped change the conversation around big data and technology across the U.S. and globally. She is an Echoing Green Black Male Achievement fellow, an Ashoka fellow, and joins the founders of Black Lives Matter and Occupy Wall Street in the distinguished inaugural class of Roddenberry Foundation fellows. In 2020, she was honored as a "Forbes 30 Under 30 Social Entrepreneur."
