Overview

The Interfaith Alliance for Safer Communities-produced documentary, Child Dignity in the Digital World, puts a spotlight on the worldwide epidemic of online child sexual abuse and exploitation and the impact it has on our communities.

There are now 800 million youth online – and everyday there are those who seek to exploit the most vulnerable in our society. In today’s digital society, content can be created and disseminated in a way that was unimaginable 20 years ago, creating a multi-billion-dollar industry around the sale and distribution of video and photographic material of extremely young and vulnerable children

This powerful documentary captures stories, insights and anecdotes from faith leaders, advocates, professors and psychologists from around the world, all of whom are working together to combat the growing threat to the innocence of children. 

There is a lack of awareness about the extent and scale of online child sexual abuse and exploitation, and Child Dignity in the Digital World makes clear the urgent need for leadership, collaboration and international coordination to combat this difficult issue.
