A Washtenaw County education leader and a former Ann Arbor police officer have formed an advocacy organization offering protection for those with hidden and visible disabilities.
WEMU's Lisa Barry talks with Dr. Benjamin Edmondson and Jason Gold about what they are hoping to create in Washtenaw County and across the state and country.
With a goal to "transform the human experience," Dr. Benjamin Edmondson and Jason Gold created "SafeBeings" hoping to offer protections to people with visible and hidden disabilities. Gold says, "It's about inclusion, trust, and breaking down barriers." He adds they are all about "being mindful of others and meeting their human needs."
SafeBeings is an application and platform communicating vulnerability causing increase in compassion, and personal and public safety.
The SafeBeings application is a non-verbal communication tool for people with invisible and visible conditions or disabilities.
The SafeBeings platform is a community of individuals influencing humaneness.
Our vision for the human experience is being compassionately responsive.
The SafeBeings application considers sensory sensitivities and disruption to life. We created this universal tool to minimize sensory triggers.
