Creation of our team
In Spring of 2020, Olin's Affordable Design and Entrepreneurship (ADE) Class created a Rights and Privacy track. This track was created in order to confront the deep inequalities produced by the U.S. criminal justice system through deliberate applications of technology.
Learning about the space
We spent the majority of the first year (and still do!) learning about what problems exist in the criminal justice space. In recent semesters we decided to focus on mass incarceration and abolitionism. Having a deep understanding of root issues is key to our ability to help our stakeholders.
Finding our place
As we are learning about key issues in the justice system, we are also thinking about how we can apply our technical (or non-technical) skills to help those leading abolitionist movements. Defining our place is very important because it impacts the parterns we work.
