First product.

Looking at the current landscape of sexual assault intervention, we found that the available resources were confusing and difficult to navigate. When you can order a pizza using your phone in less than 30 seconds, we wondered why can't we leverage this technology to provide people with help when they need it? Our first product will be a chat bot that will automate and personalize some of our planned design interventions. We’ll slowly be releasing more interventions and more platform compatibility. The goal is to eventually have me too assistance be platform agnostic so it will be accessible in as many ways as possible.

you are not alone
