Domestic Violence cases have been rising exponentially over the years and spiked during quarantine. In fact, people are at 3x the greater risk now because of COVID-19. Due to these alarming statistics, Purple Light was created to provide the emergency resources to victims in need and serve as a learning platform to prevent these cases. This app will be beneficial to everyone and can be used by anyone to learn self defense, the signs, and report any misdemeanors.
What it does
Purple Light has numerous features including a SafeSmart Location Tracker, SafeSpace Map, emergency action items, donation pages, self defense courses, resource/hotline databases, and more! It is one stop spot for anyone who is at risk or seeks to take the preventative measures early.
How we built it
We utilized the figma app to create the layout and vision. Then, exported the code to GitHub and there, it will be fine tuned and created.
Challenges we ran into
We ran into a smooth UI that is easy to navigate through, but eventually we managed through it and learned a lot through it too!
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud that we were able to solve a crisis that impacts many. We believe that everyone deserves the chance to know the safety precautions and being able to create an app that does so was very exciting for us.
What we learned
We learned the alarming statistics surrounding the domestic violence crisis. We learned a lot of prototyping through figma and basic CSS.
What's next for Purple Light
We hope to develop the app and create a more intricate code as we learn more. We both are new to code and are in the process of learning.
