App Helps End Abuse

I already wrote once about my friend, Nancy Schwartzman, and her amazing work as a documentarian. She's continuing that work with a new app that she's created which, I'm so proud to report, has won the White House Apps Against Abuse Challenge headed up by VP Joe Biden. "Circle of 6 works by programming the contact information of five friends and creating a tight-knit 'Circle of 6' into an application in case of an uncomfortable situation or emergency. It is equipped with GPS coordinates, mobile messaging, and in two simple steps, anyone can quickly and efficiently contact a friend and alert them to their situation—raising awareness around and ultimately preventing sexual violence." Phenomenal!!
