Our Mission

The RADAR Project aims to diminish the impact of violence on individuals and communities. Our mission is to empower victims with proper relief and recovery, encourage efficient reporting and information sharing, revolutionize the response to sexual assault and domestic violence, and create a better world.

REVOLUTION

The Radar Project App revolutionizes the response to sexual assault and domestic violence.  It allows comfortable and anonymous reporting of sexual violence to the community in real time, without contacting the police.

RECOVERY

Through events and outreach, the RADAR Project aspires to change the stigma surrounding sexual violence.  It will alter the way the world reacts to this public health crisis and prove there is no shame in discussing it freely.

REPORTING

Funds raised by The RADAR Project will support victims by providing improved access to the RADAR Project app worldwide, innovative therapies, legal representation for children victims, treatment facilities, and local rape crisis centers.

RESEARCH

By dedicating money to promote research, The RADAR Project will create a better understanding of the causes and effects of sexual and domestic violence.

Who We Are

In 2013, working at a local rape crisis center in suburban Philadelphia, Meri López, an attorney, and Leslie Holt, a victims advocate/rape crisis counselor, became increasingly aware of the inefficient way in which rape and domestic assault are reported.

Frustrated with the lack of awareness and the shame and secrecy that prevented victims from coming forward, the shape of The RADAR Project began to take form. Through their work at the center, they realized that many crisis centers had not substantially changed since their advent in the 1970s.  And many centers lacked funds and resources to meet the demand.

The RADAR Project was created to develop innovative technology to support victims, provide access to resources for healing, and to raise funds for sexual and domestic violence research and prevention.  In the process of engaging the public in this public health crisis, The RADAR Project strives to start a conversation on sexual assault and demolish the taboo on open public discussion.  Join us in starting a revolution.
