America’s immigration landscape is changing
The U.S. immigration system is being reshaped by a massive investment in surveillance technology and digital infrastructure. New instruments of oppression—data platforms, data mining algorithms, and military hardware—are being deployed to surveill, identify, and target thousands of immigrants and refugees each year.
This new era of technology-driven enforcement jeopardizes the fight for immigrants and refugees. The instruments of oppression used against communities are more powerful and more effective than the technical tools and digital infrastructure used by those working for justice. There is a growing sense of urgency to find new solutions to scale and amplify the fight for justice in order to rise to the challenge of facing this enhanced enforcement.
Finding solutions that rise to the challenge
We pioneer innovative solutions, test them in the field, and distribute them to those fighting for immigrants and rights.
Identify the problem
Work closely with stakeholders and users to identify, define, and understand the greatest challenges they're facing in their work.
We lean on our expertise in tech and product design to develop a pilot through a dialectical iterative design process.
Iterate and Refine
Data and insights are built into our tools for a tight development and iteration cycle allowing us to quickly optimize our tools.
Immigrant rights advocates need a way to respond quickly to community members arrested by ICE. We worked with groups across the country to build a communication platform in order to achieve this important goal. Learn More.
