More Info

The story about the Cavalry app starts in a strange, but now familiar place. Friends all catching up over a regularly scheduled Zoom call in June of 2020. It was directly after the murder of George Floyd - while the nation was undergoing groundbreaking events. Marches, protests, social media campaigns, new initiatives from everywhere including churches, courthouses, and corporations. We wanted to do something too. Something to make it easier for everyone (especially people who looked like us) to get home safely. We decided to build an app. Before long, we had an incredible team in place to do just that. Now after 8 months of collaboration, design, and development, we are preparing to launch in Spring 2021. We designed it to do three things, assist users before, during, and after a police encounter. 

  • Before - by educating users on their rights, and how to best respond. 
  • During - with one button press, the app will notify a user's emergency network via SMS, including their location. Secondly, by recording the audio of the encounter and saving it to the cloud.
  • After - by giving the user the ability to rate that police encounter and connect with a law firm if the user's rights were abused.

At this point, we have bootstrapped this app by ourselves (see our team here) and plan to launch in six cities. 

But if you help - we can reach all of our goals.

We can launch in more cities(eventually nationwide!)We can expand our marketing and communicate with lawmakers and decision-makers everywhereWe can provide more content, including more research and content focused on laws and changes that affect usWe can highlight the great police officers and lawyers who are dedicated to making things betterWe can provide new functionality to the app, like a "Green book" tool that shows which areas are troublesomeWe can sponsor events, like community outreaches where people can meet with local law enforcement and get to know themThank you for considering our mission. We know that we can affect real change with the help of so many like-minded people. Together, we can help ensure Justice For All
