Our survivor keynote is Brie W., whose full identity is being kept confidential. Brie was victimized in a widely traded child pornography series titled the BluePillow. Originally reported by the Danish National Police, NCMEC linked the photo series to California through a trash can in the background of a photo. A nearly month long investigation, based on details in the photos and videos in the series, led to her rescue and to the arrest and conviction of her abuser/child pornographer. Brie has since emerged as an advocate of efforts against child sexual exploitation and trafficking.
