WeProtect Global Alliance is a global movement of people and organizations. Its members work together to transform the global response to child sexual exploitation and abuse online. It brings together people and organizations with the knowledge, experience and influence to make the digital world safer for children. The Alliance is a public-private partnership. It is dedicated to putting online-facilitated child sexual exploitation and abuse on the global agenda and mobilising a worldwide campaign to end it. Government and law enforcement cannot tackle this crime without widespread support and engagement.

The Brave Movement exists to end sexual violence against children and adolescents. Survivors' participation and empowerment to share their recovery and response to their lived experience is crucial to delivering real, effective change. We want to provide a space that connects our global networks with survivors and decision-makers to elevate those collective voices to create the change that is needed. WeProtect Global Alliance brings an online focus to the Brave Movement, with expertise in advocating for solutions to tackle child sexual abuse online so that children and adolescents are able to enjoy the internet free from harm. By working together we will be able to connect with other perspectives and expertise to play our part in the leading global movement to end sexual violence against children and adolescents.
