DFI Speaker Series: Jason Autar
In 2021, Oyate Group launched the Bronx Rising Initiative to reverse the effects of the pandemic on The Bronx.

Oyate Group’s efforts then expanded to focus on communities targeted with misinformation and those that were under-vaccinated due to access issues and vaccine hesitancy. Hear from Jason Autar, Oyate Group’s COO on how data collection and mapping led to the organization vaccinating over 40,000 New Yorkers deemed “unreachable” in under one year.
