Ara Bagdasarian, the founder of ZeroNow, is passionately dedicated to putting an end to fatalities caused by school violence. ZeroNow aims to tackle this issue through collaboration with various stakeholders, including technology giants like Microsoft, to drive innovation and investment in school safety. The organization recognizes the fragmented nature of current approaches to school safety and strives to establish a unified voice and set of standards to achieve a common goal of zero harm on school campuses. Bagdasarian's co-founded company, OmniAlert, plays a crucial role in this ecosystem by providing technology solutions for emergency communication and gun detection. With the integration of AI-powered visual gun detection, OmniAlert's system can quickly identify firearms and trigger automatic responses, such as locking doors, alerting law enforcement, and notifying individuals to seek safety. ZeroNow aims to foster a community of like-minded individuals and organizations, including students, parents, safety leaders, school administrators, and technology companies, who share the belief that zero harm is attainable. By joining the ZeroNow movement, individuals and organizations have the opportunity to contribute to the conversation and work towards creating a safer environment for schools. With a strong focus on collaboration, innovation, and leveraging technology, ZeroNow is confident in its mission to eradicate school violence and ensure the well-being of students and staff.
