This paper surfaces individual and collective rights and harms that people need to consider in developing approaches to data use. It also outlines four broad ways to build trust: enact and refine laws and regulations related to data; apply technical solutions to expand and control data access; increase community data capacity; and establish and enhance governance for data and data systems. With this framework in mind and a focus on centering racial equity, funders can review how their actions and investments contribute to building public trust for using data for good.
