The Technology Coalition
Who We Are
The Technology Coalition was formed in 2006 and is comprised of tech industry leaders who are represented by individuals who specialize in online child safety issues. The members of the Technology Coalition are:
Our vision is to eradicate online child sexual exploitation. We have invested in collaborating and sharing expertise with one another, because we recognize that we have the same goals and face many of the same challenges.
We help emerging and other established companies enhance their efforts to detect and report images of child sexual exploitation and other predatory practices that put children at risk.
We are in a unique position to promote successful practices for the tech industry to follow in its fight against Child Sexual Abuse Material (“CSAM”), including how to handle, classify, and report CSAM, and how to create a supportive, resiliency-focused environment for content moderation staff members.
Facilitating Tech Solutions
We partner with other nonprofits to fund and advise on the development of tooling infrastructure to help Internet Service Providers scale their review operations and improve their illegal content detection capabilities.
We regularly host events for the tech industry at-large to discuss topics related to fighting online child sexual exploitation, including a Policy and Legal Forum and an Engineering Summit. In addition, we are the sole host of the “Tech Track” at the Dallas Crimes Against Children Conference, one of the largest conferences of its kind in the world.

Facebook takes very seriously its responsibility to keep children safe on our platforms and to share back what we’ve learned to other companies. We are grateful for the support of the Tech Coalition because we know no one company can fight online child exploitation alone. Together with our industry partners we are able to develop and build practical ways to make the internet safer for our children.
When it comes to a cross-industry space to navigate the challenges of fighting child sexual exploitation, there is simply no alternative that compares to the community found among our colleagues within the Technology Coalition. We are able to share our challenges and our successes with this group and we are met by the people from across the Tech Industry who are willing to support us and join us in our fight against child sexual exploitation. #TheyDidn'tPlanOnUs
