Raheem.Ai

During his time as an army engineer, Brandon Anderson handled intelligence sent back from field soldiers and base commanders, seeing firsthand the impact that data had on governmental decision-making. When he returned to civilian life, Anderson decided to use his knowledge of data gathering and dispersal to create a tool that could accomplish a goal close to his heart: protecting communities from police brutality.

That tool, an app called Raheem.Ai, hosted on Facebook Messenger, allows people to report their interactions with police officers. It has received funding from Google and Barack Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative; and last week Anderson was named a 2018 Echoing Green Fellow.
