A tool to combat violence against women in conjunction with the government.
PLP 2.0 application is an instrument to assist women in situations of domestic, family or sexual violence. In Rio Grande do Sul, THEMIS has a cooperation agreement with the State Court of Justice and the State Secretariat of Public Security.
When the device is fired, it activates the Military Brigade and the Region Popular Legal Promoters, guaranteeing the safety of the woman.
This project won the Google 2014 Social Impact Challenge Award. It is a partnership of Conceptu, THEMIS Gender and Justice with Geledés Instituto de Mulher Negra de São Paulo.
The application users have an emergency protective measure and are chosen by the Domestic Violence Court Judge according to the highest degree of vulnerability to which they are exposed. PLP 2.0 app works as a panic button that triggers the military police and sends a warning to the PLPs who live in the same neighborhood. PLPs are community leaders who have participated in training courses on women's rights and are able to share information and support for victims of domestic and sexual violence.
