About Us

We are a group of survivors, advocates and technologists who believe that everyone deserves to live in a safe and healthy environment, devoid of violence and abuse.

We formed Parasol Cooperative as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2020 amidst the pandemic with a vision to empower gender-based violence and human trafficking organizations to safely and efficiently use technology to protect lives.
