Jesús is empowering traditionally marginalized grassroots communities with his innovative new communication system, Radar de los Barrios (“Radar of the Neighborhoods”). He has created a platform to “darle voz” (give voice) to these neighborhoods in order that they might express themselves with greater range and clarity and speak from their own experience, unmediated. Radar provides a new tool to solve longstanding problems by magnifying community news, reports and complaints to achieve effective solutions co-created by all levels of society.
