Cassandra from BlackNGold Girls asked fans to share the following video with many people as possible. It is an important message featuring Steelers defensive back William Gay on RUSafe?, a mobile app which offers information and advice to young people experiencing domestic abuse at home or in their own relationships.
The Women’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh quietly launched the app in January 2014 and it recently became available to the public. RUSafe? was developed by the WC&S through a partnership with Newton Consulting and is an extension of the Pittsburgh’s December implementation of the Maryland Lethality Assessment Program (LAP).
RUSafe? users are asked a series of questions, and then calculates the responses. If there’s cause for concern, the app allows calls to WC&S’ 24-hour hotline or lets users directly contact 911 if they’re in immediate danger.
Please take a few moments to watch this video about the RUSafe? app. It could save lives of many people in domestic violence situations.
