Google Commits $5 Million to Fighting Online Child ExploitationMolly Thornberg
Tech giant Google announced this past weekend that in addition to their current efforts, they will be donating $5 million to fighting child pornography.
Google has been working to fight online child exploitation since 2006 when they joined the Technology Coalition. They have been providing software and hardware to help organization around the world fight child abuse image on the web, as well as help locate missing children.
There is much more that can be done, and Google is taking our commitment another step further through a $5 million effort to eradicate child abuse imagery online. Part of this commitment will go to global child protection partners like the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children and the Internet Watch Foundation. We’re providing additional support to similar heroic organizations in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia and Latin America.
