How might we elevate solidarity during a protest? Mass protests have increased by 11.5% annually from 2009 to 2019, across all regions of the world. The 2020 ”year of protests” has highlighted many of the issues that surround it. Too many times this year, we have seen peaceful protests degrading into violence - often sparked due to frustrations, police violence, or mis-aligned views of protestors.
This project proposes a product and system to promote the safety of those whose intentions of protesting are peaceful, and therefore protecting their human right to protest, whilst also providing a platform to feel more unified to a cause and elevate the impact of protesting.
