Circle of 6 App
The Student Coalition is promoting the new Circle of 6 app. Circle of 6 is a new, free app meant to promote safety and healthy relationships. It won a national contest for apps preventing violence, and it can be downloaded in the app store.
To use it, you select 6 of your contacts whom you wish to receive any emergency texts. You can choose to ask them to call you and give you a distraction, to come and get you (will automatically tell them your location), or to talk to you about healthy relationships. All texts are pre-written and take only a few clicks to be sent.
The app also allows you to easily call different hotlines (including ones you have added) with a few clicks.
