PROJECTS

The Tubman Project

Project Description
Our justice system has a problem... Rather than a force for good, for keeping the good people of society safe from the criminal element, it has been tainted. It has been used to oppress the powerless and to keep the powerful safe from retribution. It has been used to invade poor communities and tear their families and communities apart. And, perhaps most insidiously, it has been used to create a massive slave labor force within the US... resulting in a country with 5% of the world population being home to 25% of the world's incarcerated. One in every four prisoners lives in the land of the free. Most of these people have never been given a fair trial.

They've never faced a jury, never had a chance to defend themselves... Instead, they were shuffled through the system. Scooped up by heavily armed police forces, thrown in front of a public defender for 5 minutes and told to plead guilty, regardless of whether they had done anything wrong. They were too poor to afford legal defense. Priced out of the market for justice. The goal of The Tubman Project is to make legal defense available to the masses. To create a fair and equitable system for all those who are bound by its laws. We can end the two-tiered justice system by using technology to bridge the gap. Our choice is to Surrender or Code.

ROPES [Restoring Opportunities for Personal Enrichment and Success)

Project Description
ROPES is a mobile app and desktop interface that focuses on the experiences of probationers and parolees who are struggling to complete their court-ordered supervision. It acts as a platform by which supervisees can communicate with their probation or parole officers; find employment and community service opportunities, drug testing centers, shelters, and other resources based on location; upload and view their necessary paperwork directly to the court; and keep tabs on their progress, outstanding requirements, and important upcoming dates. To see more, please follow the Slack link under "Project Management Links" in the sidebar to the left.
