A non-profit in the 5-6-1 is getting some major star power.

She's working with them to promote groundbreaking technology that flags the I-P addresses of people who share and download sexually explicit images of minors.

Lively was just named one of Variety's honorees for its 2017 Power of Women Campaign.
