The description of PrejudiceTracker
Millions of acts of prejudice and discrimination occur around the world every single day. They range from cyber-bullying and verbal insults to unspeakable acts of violence. There is no question that prejudice is the root cause, or at least the justification, for much of the evil in the world including; wars, terrorism, displacement, and hunger. It is time the world took action to stop, or at least reduce prejudice.
Prejudice Tracker is a totally Free anti-prejudice app that offers worldwide, anonymous, crowd-sourced reporting on incidents of prejudice, discrimination, and persecution. Incidents are reported by category and type, date, time and location, and described in the victim's or observer's own words. Users can also add comments and rate the credibility of events, generate charts and spreadsheets, watch trends, and suggest new categories and types of prejudice to be included and tracked.
Anti-prejudice organizations and non-profits will be listed as partners and users can choose to associate themselves with any organization, or suggest a new organization to support. All Free!
From school and cyber bullying to sexual orientation or racially motivated slurs and discrimination, from economic maltreatment to acts of violence, and from cases of human trafficking and slavery to genocide, Prejudice Tracker creates an anonymous record of the event and empowers the victim by giving them a place to tell their story, to vent, heal, fight back, and have some control. For the observer of an event, or the user of the app, it is a forum in which to share their experiences, or read about other people's experiences, and make a positive impact on the world. For the perpetrator, it is a chance to comprehend the negativity of the incident they caused, to understand the effect on their victim and feel responsibility, and perhaps to even grow and change their ways.
Users, educators, researchers and organizations can view an interactive map of incidents around the world, and sort by geography, type and severity of the incident. Historical data, including both macro data telling the big picture and micro data showing specific incidents, are all available. The menu offers resources, original anti-prejudice creative works, nominees for anti-prejudice hero status, human rights organizations to support, and even a list of acts of kindness. Free For All!
