Survivors Anonymous App

We are seeking funds for the development of our app, tentatively named “Survivors Anonymous.” One in five women, and one in thirteen men, will be sexually assaulted at some point during their college career in the U.S. Despite the prevalence of sexual violence, injustice plagues most sexual assault cases. According to The Criminal Justice System: Statistics only six percent of assaults reported to the police end with the assailant spending a single day in prison, and there’s a ninety-nine percent chance that perpetrators will escape justice. Survivors Anonymous will provide survivors of attacks by the same perpetrator the opportunity to anonymously connect with one another upon entering the perpetrator’s name. It will enable them to provide mutual support and give them an alternative to staying silent or going to the authorities if they choose not to or aren’t ready.

Over the last six months we have been in the conceptual stages of the app’s creation, and are now at a point where we need to move forward with technical development. We have selected Varfaj Partners to develop the app, which is where the funding will be going. The $25,000 we hope to raise will cover the costs of overall app development, internal testing, beta testing, and marketing.

Our goal is to have the app completed by the end of August 2019. The time for this app is now. For too long survivors have been belittled and violated; both by their perpetrators and by those who condone sexual violence in any form. The reporting rate for survivors is so low because there is a culture of blaming, shaming, and invalidating survivors and their experiences. We currently live in a world where too often there is little to no deterrent for violating the rights of another human being. We are changing that. Any size donation will be is greatly appreciated, and will be used strictly for the app’s development.
