Carol Robles-Román Launches Alliance at Trust Women Conference
Legal Momentum’s President and CEO, Carol Robles-Román, announced a dynamic partnership Action that outlined practical and innovative solutions to stop online child exploitation at the annual Trust Women Conference in London on November 30.
To combat online sexual exploitation of children in the U.S. and around the world, Legal Momentum has launched an alliance with national partners including the Thomson Reuters Foundation, renowned legal advocate David Boies and the Boies, Schiller & Flexner firm, and filmmaker Mary Mazzio, whose forthcoming documentary, “I Am Jane Doe,” features interviews with David Boies, Carol, and Legal Momentum's Penny Venetis.
“We will speak up and fight back and our message is clear: Kids are not safe,” Carol said. “We must change dated laws, court decisions, and educate all judges and lay people alike on protecting children in this new digital age.” You, too, can help, in Carol's words, "expose the greatest human rights violation of the 21st centruy and end this evil." Join this partnership. To date, 45 international delegates and 30 U.S. supporters have pledged their support of Legal Momentum's Action.

A Thomson Reuters Foundation news item, “Surge in online sex trade of children challenges anti-slavery campaigners,” quotes Carol extensively.
