Revolar Partners with National Domestic Violence Hotline to Educate Consumers

Leader in wearable safety, Revolar, contributed 1% of equity to
non-profit The Hotline

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–RevolarⓇ,
makers of a discreet, wearable safety device, announced a partnership
with the National
Domestic Violence Hotline
(The Hotline) to educate consumers about
intimate partner violence and sexual assault. The partnership aims to
disrupt the culture around abuse and assault.

Revolar safety devices empower men and women to live the life they want,
knowing that help is near with the push of a button. Revolar keeps users
such as college students, runners, solo travelers and anyone concerned
with safety, better connected with those they trust most. With the press
of a button, the wearable device sends out different alerts via text
message and email and includes an active tracking GPS location while the
alert is active; a rapid double-press sends a Yellow Alert and a rapid
triple-press sends a Red Alert.

Born from the notion that organizations are stronger together than
individually, Revolar and The Hotline will work alongside each other to
improve education efforts nationwide about the issue of domestic
violence. Ultimately, both organizations aim to increase awareness of
the issue of domestic violence and the resources available to help
prevent and end it.

“The mission of The Hotline is so closely aligned with the mission of
Revolar, the partnership is a natural fit,” said Jacqueline Ros, founder
and CEO of Revolar. “Because of this alignment, both Revolar and The
Hotline realized that while our brands can do great things on our own,
we can influence even greater change if we work together.”

Through online activation, on-campus events, student newspapers and
resource distribution, Revolar and The Hotline will work to spread
awareness about domestic violence. According
to the CDC
, more than one in three women and more than one in
four men in the United States have experienced rape, physical violence
and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime
. With this
distressing statistic in mind, Revolar also committed to contribute 1%
of its equity. Revolar understands the scale of the problem The Hotline
works to confront each day and supports their dedication to domestic
violence issues.

“Revolar is passionate about leveraging technology to empower people to
be safe,” said Katie Ray-Jones, CEO of the National Domestic Violence
Hotline. “We are thrilled to partner with a team of people who share our
vision of helping to create a world where all relationships are
positive, healthy and free from abuse.”

The partnership has several facets, including:

  • Providing consumers with the tools and resources they need to feel
    safe and stay safe
  • Empowering students on college campuses to stay aware and educated
    about abuse
  • Creating brand ambassadors on college campuses through
    Loveisrespect.org
