Founded by Kohl Gill, LaborVoices, Inc. was named one of Echoing Green's Fellowship Finalist at the end of last month (April) under the civil and human rights category. The organization attempts to foster accountability and transparency through the exchange of information about worksites, employers, recruiters, etc. through a forum that operates on a cellphone.
Interestingly enough, LaborVoices, which is based in Sunnyvale, California also suggests that the portal can be essential to other actors as well, that is, not simply workers. "For brand-conscious companies and third-party inspectors, we’re providing a complement to existing methods of supply chain management," they write on regarding their simple forum method approach.
