What is Prostasia Foundation?

Prostasia foundation describes itself as “a new kind of child protection organization” which on the surface sounds like something people can get behind. However, they actively lobby against laws established to protect children from sexual abuse, for fear legislation endangers the activity of sex workers, pornographers, and pedophiles.

Prostasia Foundation was founded in response to FOSTA/SESTA, legislation aimed at protecting children from online sex trafficking, except they viewed the legislation as a threat to pornographic interests, and lobbied against it on the grounds that it violated free speech. They advocate for illicit practices , like how to avoid law enforcement sting operations in the solicitation of minors in chat rooms like Roblox, a popular children’s gaming platform. They claim child abuse prevention should involve teaching children about fetishes and kink , and that viewing pornography can have a positive impact on children.

Prostasia consists of a team of kink enthusiasts, sex workers, and in its earlier years, multiple convicted sex offenders. Charities in the State of California are regulated through the Attorney General who requires annual filings to ensure charitable assets are going towards intended use, but gaps in oversight and unlawful practices within these organizations reveals the way these laws can be exploited to tap into federal resources.

The Prostasia Foundation Archive is part of the Project Raven initiative. Project Raven tracks and compiles data on individuals and organizations that promote pedophilia and child abuse narratives in academia.
