In Our Backyard is excited to announce that one of our partners, Exchange Initiative is fighting human trafficking one photo at a time.
TraffickCam enables you to help combat sex trafficking by uploading photos of the hotel rooms you stay in when you travel. These photos will be used to determine where perpetrators of sex trafficking are committing their crimes.
Traffickers regularly post photographs of their victims posed in hotel rooms for online advertisements. These photographs are evidence that can be used to find and prosecute the perpetrators of these crimes. In order to use these photos, however, investigators must be able to determine where the photos were taken.
The purpose of TraffickCam is to create a database of hotel room images that an investigator can efficiently search, in order to find other images that were taken in the same location as an image that is part of an investigation.
