As social, economic, and climate landscapes change, individuals and families tend to move to where they can find a suitable community. Yet, moving is a huge risk that not many can afford to take, and not everyone is aware of what opportunities may even exist.

reRoot is a migration support platform that uses the US Census data to assist minority and disenfranchised communities within the United States to migrate and make more informed migration decisions outside of existing networks and word-of-mouth.

reRoot debuted at The Opportunity Project Summit hosted by the U.S. Census Department in December 2021. The two teams representing Harvard University from metaLAB were selected from dozens of entries by universities across the country to participate in the summit. The summit followed a year-long series of activities for the US Census Department.
