Gaining momentum in 2018.

We helped identify

10,081 kids

(That’s equivalent to filling over half of Oracle Arena, home to the Warriors basketball team.)

With the help of Thorn’s tools, law enforcement and investigators have been able to identify child sex trafficking victims and rescue children from situations where their sexual abuse was recorded and distributed. We’re building tools to stand up the toughest environments and empowering the frontlines to stop abuse before it happens.

Making platforms safer

You’ve heard us talk about finding victims faster. In 2018 we launched a new product that will help us eliminate child sexual abuse material from the internet. Safer is a complete pipeline to identify, remove, and report child sexual abuse material (CSAM) from your platform quickly. It’s simple, cost-effective, and easy to integrate so you can focus on building your platform to be whatever you dreamed it could be.

We are already seeing results and we can’t wait to share them with you.

We gained insights

Survivor insights are critical to making an impact.

Behind the data, are people, complicated experiences, and moments that are difficult to qualify. Survivor insights keep our work grounded in the complexity of real experiences. This collaboration allows for the best interventions to be developed to defend children from sexual abuse. That’s why we elevated the voices of 260 sex trafficking survivors in 2018.
