Using Tech Tools To Increase The Reporting Of Sexual Assualt

Aug 19, 2016

For various reasons, victims of sexual assault are often reticent to report crimes. But support systems for them can make a difference in reducing incidents and bringing perpetrators to justice. Researcher, educator, and activist Jess Ladd is attempting to overcome that public health hurdle using a computer system she helped develop, called Callisto.

Jess Ladd is a presenter at Kansas City's independently organized TED event, TEDxKC, which starts at 6 p.m. on Friday, August 19, at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. The live and simulcast venues are sold out, but watch party tickets are available. For more information go to TEDxKC.org.
