Protecting Lives Through Technology

Providing technology services and products for survivors and advocates to gender based and domestic violence along with human trafficking organizations so we can collectively and effectively protect lives through technology.

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.
