Everyone can be a force for good.
Are you in? Here are some ways you can take action today.
It’s going to take work to change the world. Get started by making sure your friends know the scope of the problem. Our job is to inspire people to join in this work, to show the path towards affecting change.
LISTEN TO SURVIVORS
You’ve heard the stats, but survivors are the key to turning those stats into tangible action. Center your knowledge in the experiences of people who have been there and do what you can to elevate their voices.
FIND A LOCAL ORG
This is a global problem with a local solution. Maybe your local organization has a wishlist of items they need, maybe you can offer free services, maybe you’re hiring and would like to offer a survivor a job. Think about what you have to offer, and offer it.
If you see something, say something. If you encounter possible images or video of child sexual abuse online, do not share it, report it to the CyberTipline. Report possible child sex trafficking to the National Human Trafficking Hotline.
Research is at the core of our work here at Thorn. We’re constantly learning about the issue — what makes populations vulnerable, how exploitation is evolving, the role of technology. Understanding the scale of the problem can help identify even more ways to get involved.
BE AN ADVOCATE
Knowledge of local laws gives you the power to be an even more effective advocate. Taking time out of your day to talk to your representatives about these issues shows that you care about what they’re doing to protect children.
Children deserve better.
We’re building the tools to defend children from sexual abuse, but we can’t do it without you. Your gift helps us develop critical technology to find the children who need us most.
You are a force for good.
