Social worker, advocate for survivors of domestic violence, likes to shake things up and break barriers down, to build bridges between and among communities.
I'm interested in community education, racial and gender equality, policy reform, and the development of accessible spaces for therapy, support, and growth.
Katy Merriweather That's a fantastic question. I think we think of technology as being inherently more universal for different populations, which causes us to overlook barriers to others. I think partnering with an accessibility agency would be helpful on this project.
I also wonder how this app would work with families who do not have internet access. Even with a 4G/mobile tethering, many people don't have data signal in rural/frontier areas. But it sounds like an internet connection isn't necessary for inputs.
I really appreciate how this project has been not only put together by an innovative team, but reflects brilliantly the diversity of individuals who work with families involved in home visiting. Good work, team! I hope to see upROSE in action as an innovative technology solution to social issues.
