Global Educator Center for Excellence

- Our Financial Coalitions in the U.S. and Asia Pacific fight against the online sale and dissemination of child sexual exploitation materials and live on-demand sexual abuse of children via video platforms. As a result of its efforts, the use of credit cards to purchase child sexual abuse content online has been virtually eliminated globally.
