Coalition of Immokalee Workers Co-Founder Awarded MacArthur Fellowship

Congratulations to Greg Asbed of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers on a MacArthur Fellowship!  We think this is important work too!

We’ve been advising Florida Rural Legal Services on technology to help them serve migrant workers.  A few examples–

  • Helping migrant workers track their work hours and GPS location so they have the data to prove their work hours
  • Using Google Location Sharing so that attorneys can locate their clients and do outreach in grow areas
  • Using private labels in Google Maps to mark and navigate to grow areas
  • Developing a mobile app with legal resources and “Know Your Rights” information that works in grow areas where there isn’t a mobile signal

The Florida Justice Technology Center is with you!
