Summary 

Raheem AI aims to increase police transparency and accountability by eliminating barriers to reporting police misconduct. Its mobile tools deliver communities a secure, anonymous, and easy way to report and review police interactions. A lack of clear, actionable data plays a major role in enabling police violence. Raheem AI is closing this gap by collecting and publishing data to be used to mobilize communities and advance evidence-based policy solutions that end police violence.

Experience 

Brandon D. Anderson is founder and CEO of Raheem AI. Brandon is motivated by a desire to improve the quality of life for black and brown families and other victims of systemic discrimination. During his service in the U.S. Army as a satellite engineer, he began using technology as a problem-solving tool. Following the loss of his partner to police violence and realizing his own risk of victimization as a black man, Brandon recognized an opportunity to integrate his skills with his commitment to the pursuit of justice. Brandon served two tours in Iraq, holds a BA from Georgetown University, is a Smithsonian American Ingenuity Award Nominee, and was named one of 100 Black LGBTQ Leaders to Watch by the National Black Justice Coalition.
