A 13-year-old girl from Crafton, PA made national headlines when she was kidnapped and sexually abused by a man in Virginia.
Police were able to get to her and arrest her abuser, but not before he had posted videos of the abuse for others across the world to watch.
Alicia Kozakiewicz has now made it her life's mission to stop child abuse like the horror she survived, and to protect victims from being revictimized by content that remains online.
Kozakiewicz even has a law named after her – Alicia's Law helps states secure funding for task forces committed to stopping internet child crimes in their states. So far, it has passed in 11 states, but not in Pennsylvania, and Kozakiewicz is working with Protect.org to enact it across the U.S.
