    At, we’ve seen first hand how communication technology can enable nonprofits to reach people in transformative ways. Yet harnessing the right tech isn’t always straightforward.

    Let’s face it - engaging a diverse mix of volunteers, donors, and constituents is complicated, and it’s even more challenging when people have different communication preferences.

    There are approximately 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States and 800,000 who are at risk of losing legal residency status currently provided under the DREAM Act. For these people, connections to their communities, families, and attorneys are essential to ensure that they receive fair treatment during and immediately following an immigration raid. Through their bilingual mobile app, Notifica, technologists at United We Dream seek to ensure that …
