Technology can solve many problems. But the world is confronting a crisis that needs much more than just technology. We need a movement, a movement that brings people together in a spirit of hope and kindness at our time of greatest need. And United Planet is technology meant to spark that movement.

United Planet is a rallying cry for lawyers and law students to devote their time and talents to those who need their help now more than ever before. Through Rose the Bot, the United Planet platform streamlines fast-changing, publicly available information related to government programs and legal aid for coronavirus assistance. United Planet’s platform will also unite people who need answers with lawyers and law students to help them find those answers.

 

To raise awareness of its movement, United Planet will partner with bar associations, law schools, legal aid societies and other organizations to host a series of online events to recruit volunteers and pair them people in need.

Meet Rose the Bot. Rose helps users spend less time searching for information and more time evaluating their options for financial and legal relief in response to changes created by the pandemic. Law students have identified the most likely questions that people need answered during this crisis and programmed the bot to direct them to the best answers quickly and efficiently.

 

But Rose doesn't have all the answers. Recognizing this fact, United Planet's platform will unite people who need answers with lawyers and law students to help them find those answers. If users still have questions after chatting with Rose the Bot, the platform is able to connect them with volunteers automatically.
