One Million Moms Partner with Black-Owned Bodycam App To Protect Their Kids From Police Misconduct
ANJEL Tech, a Black-owned cloud-based application that turns any smartphone into your personal body cam, has announced a historic partnership with 1 Million Madly Motivated Moms (1M4), an organization led by African American moms to address police brutality through legal action and legislative policy education.
We previously interviewed the founder of ANJEL Tech, who told POCIT that he’d struggled to get attention from mainstream reporters and investors when it came to his app.
The app in question has been described as an initiative that “could help protect minorities.”
When activated, the Anjel Tech app sends a live stream of an incident with GPS directions to the person’s location to the loved ones specified by the user.
This way, James Samuel says, loved ones can be there instantly or send help to the location. “The app is also discreet so that any person in need can quietly ask for help without an aggressor noticing. This could be helpful for anyone in a potentially dangerous situation,” he reassured.
The app also automatically saves the audio and footage that could be used later as evidence. But it doesn’t yet automatically call the police – that’s something the viewers would have to do on their own.
“The value of this technology to the preservation of our members’ lives and peace of mind is priceless,” said Tansy McNulty, 1M4 founder and chief executive officer, told BlackEnterprise.
“We are all mothers who often think about and worry about the safety of our children and family members. I can foresee our members sharing within our 1M4 virtual community how they are using ANJEL Tech, what [or] how a recording should be used to potentially seek legal recourse, how we no longer have to fear body [or] dashcam footage being edited by officers [because of ANJEL Tech] and how we have more peace in our children leaving our homes.”
Through the partnership, registered members of 1M4 receive a four-Person Family Plan subscription to ANJEL Tech as a benefit of their membership. This enables each registered member of 1M4 to protect a total of four members of their family with ANJEL Tech’s lifesaving bodycam technology.
