*Warning - distressing images and content
Late last year we exposed online marketplace Etsy for selling child sex abuse dolls and body parts and called on it to stop. Many of you took action, with a number of sellers telling us they were shutting their Etsy stores down and starting up elsewhere as a result of our campaign. These actions served as a powerful statement to Etsy’s corporate leaders to stop profiting from child sexual exploitation material (CSEM).Read more

Massive leap in sharing of child sexual exploitation material
September 6 - 12 is National Child Protection Week. This year’s theme is ‘Putting children first’.
To mark this important week, the Australian Centre to Counter Child Exploitation (ACCCE) hosted its annual child protection stakeholder workshop, online this time due to COVID-19.
Our Movement Director Melinda Tankard Reist was invited to represent Collective Shout at the event which put a spotlight on the magnitude of the global child exploitation problem, and the need for joint efforts to combat it.
The core principle that sits at the heart of what we do at the @AusFedPolice-led ACCCE is #Partnership. Yesterday we had the pleasure of hosting a workshop to collaborate with key prevention stakeholders in #ChildProtection. We are working together to keep children safe. #NCPW20 pic.twitter.com/8lDle5N6Jn— Australian Centre to Counter Child Exploitation (@ACCCE_AUS) September 8, 2020
Thanks for the invitation- while child sexual exploitation is a mammoth problem, it was encouraging to learn more of combined efforts to counter it.— Collective Shout (@CollectiveShout) September 9, 2020
