  2. Technology supporting community organization and action (e.g., for protest, group-defined initiatives).
  3. Website design to reduce racial profiling found in neighborhood/community web sites, or to promote access to mental health resources.
  4. Racially-biased biosensors/devices (e.g., pulse oximeter, PPG sensor, spirometer).
