Clarissa explores community-driven progress. As a fellow, she's exploring open source hardware and producing the oral history of Kickstarter United, the first tech company union in US history. She is a core collaborator in Collective Action in Tech, a platform for tech workers organizing for change and co authored a guide to organizing against white supremacy in the workplace. On the steering committee for Tech Workers Coalition NYC, she supports the growing tech labor movement and advocates for worker-driven progress in the industry. Clarissa is interested in how communities empower creators and explored this concept in Solidarity Onboarding, a campaign to encourage collective action and create modern education materials for labor rights.
