The Domestic Worker App

The first lab project to engage law students on workers’ rights was our collaboration with Marisa Jahn of REV- and her Project NannyVan.  Three upper-level law students worked during Fall Quarter 2013 in a structured independent study with domestic workers organized by the Brazilian Immigrant Center (BIC), MIT Center for Civic Media students, and artists with REV- to collaboratively design the structure and initial content of the Domestic Worker App.

The NuLawLab actively worked with BIC and REV- on a project plan and fundraising for the creation of Domestic Worker App episodes and informational materials dedicated to the Massachusetts Domestic Workers' Bill of Rights, which was signed into law on July 2, 2014. The hotline is active and you call this number to learn more: (347) 967-5500
