Advocating for Justice
Good Call is a project started within the Blue Ridge Labs fellowship, a five month program where teams build digital products aimed at addressing key issues faced by low-income New Yorkers, with an approach focused on human-centered design, testing, and outreach work. The co-founders built Good Call after months of research and discussions with people in New York communities and legal experts in the criminal justice space. The co-founders heard countless stories from people who were arrested for trivial reasons, and how uncomfortable, painful, confusing, and damaging this experience can be. The co-founders decided to try to do what we could to help address this issue. The co-founders are excited that the hotline is now serving the Bronx (1-833-3-GoodCall), with plans to expand to the rest of New York City.

Good Call is collaborating with Bronx Community College Criminal Justice Program to spread the word to students and the community.
