Manon Vergerio

Manon Vergerio (she/her) is the Head of Data & Advocacy and a co-founder at Unlock NYC, a women-led tech nonprofit that designs digital tools for fair housing. At Unlock NYC, she designs data-driven, participatory research projects to illuminate how housing bias perpetuates homelessness in New York City. She strategizes with a network of grassroots advocates, community-based organizations, and data collectives to communicate research findings to policymakers, leveraging data for systemic change. She is also deeply committed to building an inclusive, consensus-driven organization where women from all walks of life and socioeconomic backgrounds can thrive.

Manon comes to this work through an interdisciplinary background in community organizing, participatory research, and spatial data analysis. Her practice is firmly rooted in the belief that people most directly impacted by urban injustice are expert problem-solvers equipped to design creative solutions. Prior to starting Unlock NYC, she spent years researching and organizing around housing issues in New York, San Francisco, and Paris, including co-founding the NYC chapter of the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project, a data visualization and storytelling collective documenting the eviction crisis.

Moving forward, she hopes to continue working closely with communities, organizers, designers, technologists, and activists to imagine and build radically inclusive cities. She holds a BA in Urban Studies from the University of Pennsylvania, and an MS in Design & Urban Ecologies from Parsons School of Design.
