Radical Productions Youth Technology Collective
Radical Productions is a youth-run technology collective based out of Grace in Action Collectives. Radical Productions listens to community needs and uses their technology skills to create innovative solutions to complex community problems. Members have training in basic and intermediate computer coding languages, including HTML, Java Script, back-end programming, and Node.js. They are also proficient in graphic design and CSS.
After surveying community members in the summer of 2017, Radical Productions has been working on apps to address the realities of pollution in the Southwest Detroit neighborhood. Currently Radical Productions is completing a 'Truck Spot' app that will be ready for download in the summer. Truck Spot will allow residents to track and record idling trucks in violation of the City of Detroit's idling ordinance in order to show cumulative impacts of pollution.
This summer Radical Productions youth will be partnering with the Equitable Internet Initiative team to build sensors and track and map pollution data from nearby trucks and factories.
