Citizen Science Documentary “The Crowd & The Cloud” features Witnesses to Hunger

April 14, 2017

Witnesses to Hunger, the community advocacy organization within the Center for Hunger-Free Communities, is featured in The Crowd & The Cloud, a new 4-part documentary about the power of citizen science.

In the Summer of 2016, members of Witnesses to Hunger learned about the risks of lead poisoning in water and paint in Philadelphia homes. For several weeks, they engaged community members in testing their own homes for lead in the water and educating them about the risks and harms of lead poisoning. The Crowd & The Cloud team followed them along the process of training, educating, and supporting Philly residents on this issue.

The documentary demonstrates how Citizen Science is revolutionizing the ways we gather, analyze, and utilize the data that fuels scientific research, discovery, and community action.

Witnesses to Hunger is featured in Episode 2 as part of the Philly Unleaded segment. The episode premiered on April 13 and can be viewed online.
