Abstract: An estimated 1 in 4 women experience domestic violence in their lifetime, which often happens cyclically rather than as an isolated incident. The primary stakeholders directly impacted by this issue include survivors of domestic violence, their families, and domestic violence support organizations.The project envisions collaborating with legal experts, legislators, community partners, and domestic violence support organizations to develop and advocate for policy memos that provide economic compensation to survivors, thereby reducing their financial needs and empowering them to regain control over their lives.

Abstract: Seventy-seven percent of all deaths in Mongolia are due to preventable and early detectable diseases. This project will improve education and habits around preventative health care in ger districts through community-based solutions using digital and non-digital content and design. The project will require cooperation from community partners (GerHub and local authorities), healthcare professionals (MDs, MPHs), and designers/artists. Specifically, together we will create a visual and interactive timeline of all preventive healthcare services, from birth through the desired life expectancy of 66 for men and 76 for women. The timeline will be presented both in digital and physical formats.

Abstract: The Good Energy Collaborative aims to build an alliance of Chester and North Philadelphia residents, Swarthmore College students, and professors who are interested in exploring options for developing green jobs training programs and enterprises in the city of Chester and North Philadelphia. The project is inspired by the success of an earlier community-campus initiative centered in North Philadelphia known as Serenity Soular as well as other environmental justice communities' successes through their green job training programs, solar cooperatives, and other green and socially-responsible enterprises.
