Illinois Legal Aid Online (ILAO) Social good organization Illinois Legal Aid Online (ILAO) is a small organization with a big mission. We recognize that justice is scarcest for those who need it most. We believe the law can help people find justice, but know it is hard to understand. We simplify the law so that people use the law to get the justice they seek. We do this by providing free, plain-language, self-empowerment tools in English, Spanish and Polish. Our resources are available from any mobile device 24/7. In 2020, more than 3 million people will use our website, IllinoisLegalAid.org, to find help with critical legal problems like domestic abuse, divorce, debt, eviction, deportation, and access to medical care.

MedicMobile Volunteer group The goal of this project is to conduct a first analysis to compare actual and expected delivery dates and see if our findings could be used to inform the schedule of antenatal care visits. This project will use a de-identified dataset to examine differences in reported last menstrual period (LMP) as a determinant of a pregnant woman’s delivery data and women’s recorded delivery dates in the CHT application. In our data, we currently observe a tendency for CHWs to estimate LMP by months, which is not useful when trying to anticipate a woman’s delivery date and set a schedule for antenatal care (ANC) visits.

tentree Social good organization We make Earth-First clothing essentials using the most sustainable (and comfortable) materials in the world. Every time you purchase an item, we plant 10 trees. By planting trees for every purchase, we’re making big change accessible to everybody and showing the lasting impact that one small choice can have. Everything we do stems from how to do better by our planet—like planting trees. We plant trees because it’s one of the best ways to create a more sustainable future. But over the years, we’ve realized that our journey doesn’t start and end with planting trees. We’re constantly looking at innovative ways to make apparel with the smallest possible footprint and create more circular supply chains. To give you some context, a tentree sweatshirt uses on average 75% less water to make than the other sweatshirts in your closet. Education
