I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU'RE DOING STOP AND READ THIS »

ookintothemind:

Ok Dr. Phil’s wife, Robin, (yes groan, but listen up) has this new app out (iPhone and Android) that’s for people in abusive relationships. It’s called Aspire News and it’s disguised as a regular news app, but when you go to the “Help” section of the app, it leads you to domestic violence resources and also has a “Go Button” that when you press it, if you’re in a compromising situation, alerts local authorities as well as local shelters and starts recording everything that is going on.

Now, if you’re looking up resources on the app and your abuser is near, simply press the X button and it brings you to a random news page. Same goes for the actual foundation site.

ITS COMPLETELY FREE
Site

Apps


SPREAD THIS, DONT JUST “LIKE IT”

littlearchitect:

this is the third social media outlet I have posted this to, but it bears repeating: 

Smith College announced today that the 2014 Commencement speaker will be Christine Lagarde. 

Smith College has not had a Commencement speaker who is a woman of color since Lani Guinier in 2002, twelve years ago.
