While not everyone interacts with the justice or legal system in their lifetime, flaws in the justice system stand to absolutely ruin, and even end, a person's life. According to NYT tracking and data analyst Statista, in 2020, there were over 1,000 wrongful police shootings in the USA. Despite the fact that only 13% of the American population is black, and a smaller portion is Hispanic, these minorities are overrepresented in these homicides... and also in incarcerations and arrests. We first aimed at creating technologies that would help civilians of all kinds hold officers of the law accountable.
Because even if an officer of the law is found to have wrongfully injured or killed a U.S. citizen, often they receive no more punishment than short unpaid leave.
At Tell-Brand, we believe that leveraging technology to improve the outcomes of minority businesses is a win for everyone: minority members of any community and the American economy at large.
We are devoted to creating apps that make finding, promoting, running, and even starting businesses easier.
With over six decades since Brown v. Board of Education, schools, particularly public schools, are in many places even more segregated than they were in the 1980s. According to multiple published studies, black and other minority race students are often at a significant disadvantage compared to white peers.
At Tell-Brand, we believe we can use technology to improve outcomes for minority students across the country. Moreover, we stand to help make education easier to attain, even for adult students seeking new career opportunities.
