Civil Media Company asked
How might we help journalists in other parts of the world facing challenges from censorship to personal safety?
Journalists in Mexico are unable to quickly notify emergency contacts in the case of imminent attacks, resulting in missed opportunities to potentially save the journalist or learn more details about the attack. We have built a wearable panic button for journalists to quickly communicate information to emergency contacts via a mobile app.
