Ashton Kutcher is a well-known person in American entertainment. He is also a successful venture capitalist with some great investments.
He has also tried to tackle some of the worst problems that exist in our society today – human trafficking.
This is a form of slavery whereby people are unwillingly sold and used for terrible purposes like sex and profit.
With technology improving all of the time, it is becoming easier for traffickers to get away with things.
Kutcher and his previous wife Demi Moore started a group called Thorn to try and thwart these people.
Since establishing Thorn in 2008, the organization has so far, identified and rescued over 6,000 trafficking victims and captured over 2,000 traffickers – many of which are now in the process of facing criminal charges.
Chairman of the Thorn Technical Task Force, Jim Pitkow said as the world is improving with technology, so too will unscrupulous people improve on their advantage to carry out these activities, which impact negatively on our society.
“New innovations will always be adopted for both good and evil purposes. At Thorn, we tip the scales in favor of good by stopping exploitation and protecting our children,” Pitkow said.
