About
Thorn builds technology to defend children from sexual abuse. We join forces with the sharpest minds from tech, non-profit, government, and law enforcement to stop the spread of child sexual abuse material and stand up to child traffickers.
Thorn was born in 2012. Our co-founders Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore had learned about the issue of child sex trafficking from a documentary highlighting what was happening to children in Cambodia. They describe it as this moment where you learn something about the world that you can’t un-know. As they started learning more, they realized that it is just as prolific of a problem here in the United States as it is overseas.
