For Report and Map It, a project using mobile phones to document unfair car impoundments

To raise awareness about the growing number of car impoundments affecting the poor, the California Community Foundation will enable locals to use mobile phones to anonymously report the impoundments.

The Report and Map It campaign will feature a  mobile app that will aggregate information and location details from text messages and photos sent by residents. This data will be presented in a digestible way, aiming to stop abuses by influencing policy. The campaign will also establish a bilingual, region-specific website and training sessions to help residents learn about their legal rights.
