Number 4 seeks to support women in all of the life circumstances they may find themselves in.
Today we’re highlighting a topic that touches both our hearts and our minds. It’s a challenging conversation to have but one that needs to be heard and we’re only too willing to share our platform to help raise awareness.
New Movie Sextortion Focuses on Keeping People Safe From Online Predators
On October 4th a new documentary was released called Sextortion. The movie details an emerging form of online abuse – crimes of sexual exploitation where young women and children, including boys, are threatened and blackmailed with sexual images in order to coerce the person to do something. With young people’s increasing connection to strangers through social media, sextortion can begin on any website, app or video game where people can have conversations. It is a very real threat, entrapping thousands throughout the country (starting with kids as young as 10 years old) with devastating effects such as shame, fear, confusion and even suicide.
The number one thing that parents can do to help their children is to have conversations about this issue. The Sextortion movie helps to bring awareness to families and to jump start conversations about this potentially sensitive topic.
Our Charity Partner Million Kids
Million Kids, a non-profit organization, has a simple but important mission; to help keep kids safe from predators. This nonprofit organization has been working since 2008 to help prevent the commercial exploitation of children.
It seems hard to fathom that today millions of kids around the globe are vulnerable and open to sexploitation but sadly, it is a fact of the world we live in.
There were a staggering 17,000 reports received in 2020 alone of child sex trafficking cases among ALL 50 US states.
Prevention Through Education
Only through investment in education and training, can we begin to intervene and put programs in place to support the many wonderful people working at Million Kids and other charitable organizations just like it to support families and children who are deeply affected by this crisis.
Million Kids does more than support families and victims through providing access to resources and support. It also produces insider alerts, training resources and even hosts a weekly educational radio show. We encourage you all to get involved.
Today’s world, where the advancement of digital technologies and crypto-currencies contribute towards making the web a dark place, can lead to the perfect storm of opportunities for anonymous and faceless individuals and rings to exploit opportunities for grooming, and ultimately the recruitment of innocent teens and adults into a world of sexual exploitation and crime that they find it difficult and harrowing to escape.
Dedicated to preventing all kinds of child exploitation including sextortion, child pornography and the prevention of sex trafficking, by joining forces with Million Kids, Number 4, and YOU, our wider audience, can all do your part to help.
Together, we can be a force for good and help put a stop to the 82 million reports of child pornography and 322 million reported offending images and videos that are currently in circulation.
