Animating Democracy held its second Evaluators Circle (E-Circle) at the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center, inviting Los Angeles-based cultural leaders, researchers, and evaluators to share evaluation projects, findings and learning.  It was a rich and hearty exchange.  With support from the Nathan Cummings Foundation, and help in organizing from Kamella Tate, independent evaluator and former director of research and evaluation at The Music Center of Los Angeles County, our L.A. Evaluators Circle offered an opportunity to explore ways that data analysis and evaluation are informing decision making with an emphasis on cultural equity as a social justice goal.
