Taboom selected for Out in Tech’s Digital Corps web support

Out in Tech selected Taboom’s Media Monitoring and Response Coalition website to develop during its Digital Corps “build” day in New York City on 22 September 2018.

Our new website, TaboomMRC.com, will mobilize journalists, activists, faith leaders, lawyers, policymakers, and other community stakeholders to rapidly and collaboratively track and combat problematic media portrayals of taboo human rights topics in a unified and systematic manner.
