What do you need? What do you think? They're simple questions that remind us that no matter how complex it gets, it's still about people, talking with people, and living with people. Because no matter how far we may find ourselves apart from one another, our similarities will always outweigh the distance.
Our aim is to celebrate the shared human experiences between Bay Area residents and those living in the Tenderloin – a neighborhood highly susceptible to one-sided media reporting and dire data sets that perpetuate negative stereotypes.
To that end, We All Need is a data set that humanizes the Tenderloin: a vivid portrait of the Tenderloin neighborhood composed of the thoughts and needs of people interviewed on its streets.
