“While our work is about technology, it is important to remember that this is a human issue. We are talking about someone’s child, someone’s son or daughter, sister or brother.“
– Demi Moore, Co-Founder, THORN
I recently stumbled upon THORN, an organization that “partners with nonprofits and academic institutions to gather new insights into the role technology plays in child sex trafficking, the creation and proliferation of child pornography, and the normalization of child sexual exploitation”. THORN uses this data to develop tools and approaches to then address these issues.
This concept of targeting and combating the issue of sexual exploitation – specifically the youth population – is brilliant! I love how THORN is approaching human trafficking from one of its many facets in order to effectively reduce the demand and effect(s) it has here in America as well as worldwide!
I encourage you to check out THORN and to become plugged into their social media facets in order to stay updated on industry-related news. THORN is a wonderful organization doing amazing things to fight the spread of child sexual exploitation and is a wonderful asset to utilize, especially those of us with children. Please share them with your friends who have children so that they may have one additional tool in protecting and defending their children.
