Many of us have seen Ashton Kutcher in movies that we love like "Jobs," "No Strings Attached" and "Valentine’s Day." If you haven’t seen those movies, maybe you know him from "That 70s Show," where he starred as the notoriously hilarious Michael Kelso. But beyond his filmography, you should be aware of the major role he has played in rescuing sex trafficked children.
In 2008, Kutcher and his then wife, Demi Moore, began an organization called Thorn. With the use of technology, Kutcher discovered that the main way traffickers seek out children is through the internet. So as a counter effect, he founded an internet organization to seek out traffickers and prevent trafficking.
Through research, Thorn has been able to accelerate victim identification, disrupt platforms and deter predators. This has led to the rescue of at least 6,000 child sex slaves http://tribunist.com/news/ashton-kutcher-and-his-o....
But there's more work to do. Roughly 2 million children are currently a part of the sex slavery ring each year, according to Equality Now. Is that scary yet? Let's zoom in. The United States alone potentially has 300,000 minors involved in the sex trade, according to Ark of Hope for Children. The fact that Kutcher and his organization were able to rescue even just 2% is a huge step in the rescue of children and prevention of further cases.
