We partner 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.

We create and support tech initiatives that disrupt predatory behavior and work to make the internet a more hostile environment for those who seek to exploit children.

We recruit the brightest minds in technology to solve specific problems in our fight against the sexual exploitation of children.

Through our technology task force, we facilitate the sharing of information across platforms and encourage cooperation on initiatives between industry leaders.
