Android app to browse and share incidents during protest for George Floyd

Android App for 2020 Police Brutality Incidents

In the midst of COVID-19, the past 2 weeks have been horrific from many fronts, especially after the murder of #GeorgeFloyd on May 25h. It gives me hope to see how the issue resonated among Americans and Canadians. It IS time to speak up, to be silent is to be complicit.

As an engineer, I am overwhelmed to see how communities came together both online and offline. One online community that is trying to actively document and preserve all #PoliceBrutality incidents during peaceful protest is on Reddit at r/2020PoliceBrutality/

I also wanted to participate in spreading the words #BlackLivesMatter #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd by making a simple Android app that uses data collected by the subreddit r/2020PoliceBrutality/ community. I hope more people become aware and take smaller actions towards making the world a better place.

Currently, the app is pending approval to be published in Google Play store, however, if you want to test drive it, it's available on GitHub to manually download and install on your phone.
