Sign this petition on Change.org to tell Village Voice Media to stop advertising sex trafficking of young boys and girls on backpage.com. According to Nicholas Kristof’s column on March 17, backpage.com has become the premier web site for human trafficking in the United States.
Stopping web sites such as backpage.com will not end human trafficking, but it will hinder the pimps marketplace if they cannot advertise online.
Ending human trafficking altogether- whether it is in the sex, labor, domestic, etc field- will take A LOT of effort and resources because it is such a discrete business. But by stepping up and doing your part, we will be one step closer to living in a society where no human is someone else’s property.
