Technology to Combat Online Sex Trafficking
Freedom Signal is an online platform to help advocates develop ongoing relationships through texting
We enable direct service organizations to send targeted text-based outreach to potential victims identified through web scraping. When a potential victim replies, it enables advocates to build trust with vulnerable populations in acute crisis.
Freedom Signal’s outreach technology was designed by software engineers and survivors of online sex trafficking to address the specific needs of this population, while ensuring a safe, direct channel of communication.
Freedom Signal is an online app for service providers and advocates that specialize in reaching victims of online sex trafficking or sexual exploitation. When a potential victim replies to a direct outreach message, it enables advocates to develop relationships and build trust with vulnerable populations in acute crisis.
Our in-house technology team is made up of software engineers and other tech professionals who have dedicated their skills to combatting online sexual exploitation. By creating the software ourselves, we’ve able to develop software in conjunction with advice and input from survivors. Our unique non-profit technology team is able to quickly address the needs of our partners who are connecting with people in need and offering services directly to this underserved population.
