NEW YORK, New York — On Monday (March 19), Roc Nation announced their partnership with the upcoming app Promise, which looks to Reduce Incarceration Rates.
“We are increasingly alarmed by the injustice in our criminal justice system,” Jay-Z said in a statement. “Money, time and lives are wasted with the current policies. It’s time for an innovative and progressive technology that offers sustainable solutions to tough problems. Promise’s team … is building an app that can help provide ‘liberty and justice for all’ to millions.”
Promise will use a smart-phone app to bring a “cost-effective and more humane alternative to incarceration.” It will be available to both government agencies and inmates. The program plans to assist those who cannot afford to defend themselves in court. The decarceration startup will lay out a strategic plan for each citizen within the agenda to execute their obligations to the legal system so no missteps are taken.
