Summary: Two to three FBI designed and monitored laptops, and training for cyberteam volunteers of 'Love Alaska/Priceless' to work to identify and rescue women who are being trafficked in Alaska via the dark web.
Priceless currently has a Cyber Team who is online searching for trafficking victims who are being bought and sold in digital spaces. This team is using technology that is normally used for nefarious purposes, to find and potentially rescue victims. This team has some unique technology needs and these funds will go to provide the laptops needed to perform anti-trafficking work online. The work of the Cyber Team is crucial in identifying and finding potential trafficking victims online. This work also requires specialized education and training to understand the world of online trafficking, how to search and locate individuals, and what the process is for documenting what its found. This training equips the team to serve in this way. The time frame for laptop purchase and training is calendar year 2019, which will involve Rotarians from Anchorage East and other clubs.
This project is "Approved". This means that the district leadership has reviewed and approved the allocation of district funds for this project. Once the funds from the district have been issued, the status of the project will be changed to "Paid".
Project listed for the 2019-20 Rotary Year.
