Celebrating Our #TribFest20 Anniversary … with Data

Without data, you’re just a person with an opinion. So, Texas 2036 partnered with The Texas Tribune on our FAST FACTS video series, illuminating big issues facing Texas.

Margaret Spellings is Texas 2036’s president and CEO and former U.S. Secretary of Education. She also serves on The Texas Tribune board.

“This year, to align with #TribFest20’s month-long virtual format, we partnered again with the Tribune on a series of FAST FACTS videos. Each one seeks to provide sourced, factual information across 15 important topic areas such as education, health care, criminal justice and more.”

“The videos are a small product of the more than 350 datasets that Texas 2036 has amassed in our Data Lab. We also built a new COVID-19 dashboard to show how well Texas is responding to the pandemic and how it’s affecting individual counties. And we’re about to add nearly 200 more datasets to our collection.”

“Please take a look at these facts, contribute your voice, and join us and people across the state in advocating for long-term solutions to this growing state’s challenges.”
