NMP helps creates maps for social justice
More coverage of the NMP map by Laura Greenfield who coded and mapped for social justice by creating a resource for Step by Step, a program for young, single mothers. The map of local resources used to be in a single binder that clients would have to leaf through it to find what they need. Now, Torp says, they call her, she plugs their address into Greenfield's map, and the closest resource, whether it's food, shelter or diapers, pop up on the screen. Since many of them lack transportation, proximity is critical.
