The SAFELab at the University of Pennsylvania is a transdisciplinary research initiative focused on examining the ways in which youth of colour navigate grief, violence, and joy on and offline. We combine computation and social work, using a variety of multi-model methods in order to understand the mechanisms of violence, grief, and joy.

The mission of InterpretMe is to promote human rights and social justice by providing social media users with interactive learning experiences that help them interpret social media content in a community centered way.

Our tool can help to reduce the risk of wrongful punitive actions and negative digital footprints against historically marginalized communities, and support a more equitable and fair response to social media communication.
