Working together to end the online sexual exploitation of children
What is the online sexual exploitation of children?
In this crime, children are sexually abused by traffickers who then spread or sell images or videos of the exploitation online—even livestreaming the abuse for sex offenders to direct from anywhere in the world.
IJM supports the end of all forms of online sexual exploitation of children.
We focus on protecting children exploited by traffickers who create new child sexual exploitation materials,
especially via video livestreaming, to satisfy the online demand of child sex offenders.
