Co-founded by Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore, Thorn is fighting CSAM

Child Sexual Abuse Material is all over the internet, and Thorn's mission is to eradicate child sexual abuse online through pioneering technological solutions. Thorn was born in 2012 after Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore watched a documentary involving children in Cambodia and what they were experiencing. The organization has partnered with many big tech companies including Microsoft, Facebook, Adobe, Intel, and Pinterest, just to name a few. They also work with, and support, other nonprofits such as Polaris Project, IJM (International Justice Mission), NCMEC (National Center for Missing & Exploited Children), and GEMS (Girls Education and Mentoring Services).

Thorn's Spotlight product assists law enforcement in identifying victims faster, allowing agencies and departments more time to focus on finding child sex trafficking victims. Their commercial product Safer allows platforms to identify, remove, and report child sexual abuse material (CSAM).

Thorn is a growing full-time team of staff and contractors, working from over 21 states to unleash the power of technology on behalf of vulnerable children.
