What is the Maya Cares chatbot?

The Maya Cares chatbot is a tool you can chat with but not a real person. Maya can give you friendly support, since racism is a difficult topic to provide resources and make a report.

To create Maya Cares, the team worked with experts in racism, mental health and spoke to Bla(c)k Women and Women of Colour.

Who can use the Maya Cares chatbot?

Everyone can access the Maya Cares chatbot. Maya Cares was made by and for our community of Bla(c)k Women and Women of Colour who have experienced and / or are experiencing racism.
