Justice Tech Apps
"WAMI has worked to create multiple justice-focused web applications that aim to solve multiple of the issues that we are fighting against."
Technology is becoming a more integral part of our society by the day, which is why WAMI believes that we must incorporate this ideal into our mission to fight for justice. In collaboration with Neota Logic, WAMI has worked to create multiple justice-focused web applications that aim to solve multiple of the issues that we are fighting against.
One of the apps we worked on is a forced labor risk detector tool. This app helps users to identify signs of forced labor (labor trafficking or sex trafficking) in situations that either they or a loved one are experiencing. In terms, the app provides users with personalized guidance on how to best respond to their situation. Another app we worked on is a public defender access tool for Connecticut. This app can help a user to learn more about what a public defender does, determine their eligibility for working with a public defender on their case, and receive guidance on how they can work with a public defender if they already have one.
WHY IS THIS PROJECT IMPORTANT?
Ensuring equitable access to resources is a crucial aspect of our fight for justice. Developing these applications allows us to significantly expand our reach while offering assistance to individuals from diverse life experiences and backgrounds. By doing so, we can empower everyone in our society to live life to their fullest potential by getting the help that they need to succeed.
