This tool was initiated by cut50 with Sara Sepasian, Gina Montarano, Reece Carolan, Lucas Negritto, Franklin Wang, Oliver Ni, and Riley Kong with special assistance from Amir Jabbari, Nikki Pope, and Antonio Reza at the Santa Clara Law Second Chances Empathy Hackathon. More features were added by Connor Azzarello and Darshan Bhansali and the tool was completed, styalized to match Paper Prisions' website, and user tested by Jay Kanakiya, Max Calcoen, and Ju Young Park.
