As part of the 2016 Mozilla Fellows for Science program, I completed/participated in the following:

Open Advice Website Answering your real world questions about open science.
Radian Data Website with PressForward Plugin A platform that enables curation, centralization, and discovery of resources for open data practitioners, educators, and enthusiasts on the open web. This project will fill a community need by helping researchers, students, and librarians connect to the best resources on data topics and build cross-disciplinary connections.
Scientists Speaking Up Website, survey, and community building A campaign support early career researchers efforts to create an inclusive future for science and insure that socities are standing up for science in an era of "alternative facts", by advocating inside scientific societies. This campaign supported by the early career advocacy group Future of Research.
