I wrote for OneZero, a tech publication at Medium, about how Uber Eats delivery workers are keeping each other safe in Mexico City.

“On a recent Tuesday night, Luisa Amezquita, a Rappi company delivery worker, was headed home after her last drop-off of the evening when her motorcycle broke down. She was miles from home, and nervous. So she reached out for the only help she could think of.

‘Is anyone awake? I’ve been trying to get home since 10 p.m. and still I haven’t made it,’ she texted to a WhatsApp group of women food delivery workers in Mexico City. Stephanie Rojas, who manages the WhatsApp group, started making phone calls.”
