Hester Street (HST) brings to the partnership a POC-led team with deep knowledge and expertise in GIS mapping, community engagement, and data visualization. HST led the planning of NYC’s first CreateNYC Cultural Plan and the city’s 2020 Census Complete Count Campaign. HST is a national urban planning, design, and development nonprofit that works to ensure communities, neighborhoods, and cities are shaped by the people who live in them, especially for those historically left out. They offer planning, design, and community development technical assistance to community-based organizations, government, and other agencies.
