Data in the public interest

Why is it that those in the most need have the hardest time in finding the resources they need? Imagine if you've been served an eviction notice. You need to find legal help quickly and may not have a computer or internet access. And searching through a large database on a phone isn't easy.

Stanford Legal Design Lab

The Stanford Legal Design Lab team researches, designs, and develops new interventions to ensure equal access to justice for all. Its team builds and studies new technologies, services, and policies that can empower people who are dealing with legal problems. It coordinates people, ideas, infrastructure, and data that can scale justice innovations. The lab works towards a future where courts, legal services, Internet platforms, community groups, government agencies, and other justice institutions better help people resolve their justice problems, protect their rights, and improve their communities with dignity and empowerment.

One powerful man's all expense paid luxury vacation is a poor woman's eviction.

"Bloomberg reported, Thomas did not appear to recuse himself in a 2005 Supreme Court case involving Trammell Crow Residential, in which Crow Holdings owned a minority stake. In the coming months, the rent control issue flagged by Crow Holdings could be before Thomas and the high court. A group of New York landlords are preparing to petition the Supreme Court to overturn the city’s rent stabilization laws after losing a recent case. Such a ruling could endanger rent-control laws nationwide." - Lever News

Use this relationship map to track Clarence's many gifts and vacations from billionaires.

Hey! Don't blame Clarence as you drive to meet with your eviction lawyer. Being a Supreme Court justice is hard work and he needs his many vacations... But could he have recused himself from a case that would benefit Harlan Crow, the billionaire who paid for his vacation. Sorry. Can't answer that. I'm not a lawyer.

You gotta vote

So you thought your vote doesn't matter? The only way to fix this corrupt system that billionaires have rigged with the help of a GOP-packed Supreme Court is by voting.

Oops! I just remembered: Once someone is homeless after eviction, they have a much harder time voting because they don't have a mailing address. How convenient: evict people. Make them homeless. And then deny them their right to vote. Republican voter suppression at its finest!

Vote while you still can. Get started by registering to vote at I WILL VOTE and check to see if you have the right form of Voter ID at VoteRiders.

TakeAway: Make it easier for people to find the information they need with a map. Vote to fix this billionaire rigged system.
