ASPIRE Domestic Violence Education
The following ASPIRE training presentation from the When Georgia Smiles organization that provides information on how to recognize domestic and date sexual violence and ways to recognize, prevent, and get help for sexual violence.
The ASPIRE News App
Built for use on smartphones, the ASPIRE News app is a major development in domestic violence safety and is the first of its kind. The app is disguised as a normal icon and even has a decoy home page, so you’ll be safe if your abuser takes your phone.
The most important feature of the ASPIRE News app is called the GO Button, which you can activate the moment you are in danger. Once activated, the GO Button will send a pre-typed or pre-recorded message to multiple trusted, pre-selected contacts, or even 911, saying that you are in trouble. Additionally, once the app is activated, your phone will begin recording audio of everything that is going on in the room, which can be used as evidence for any legal proceedings that may stem from the incident.
It is important to always have your location services activated, as many of the apps features require it. For example, the app can be used to locate the shelters and resources closest to you.
