From the Stop the Injustice Campaign:

“Sex trafficking is exploding online, finding haven in online classifieds that provide a platform to facilitate sex trafficking. Despite knowingly facilitating this crime these websites are permitted to hide behind an outdated and misinterpreted provision of the Communications Decency Act (CDA). Section 230 of the CDA was never intended to protect entities that facilitate sex trafficking and yet, courts have repeatedly interpreted Section 230 as providing blanket immunity for online entities, including online entities that knowingly facilitate sex trafficking.

To address this legal loophole, two bills were recently introduced in the House and Senate: H.R. 1865, the Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act and S.B. 1693, the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act. These two bills would amend the CDA to ensure websites that facilitate sex trafficking can be held accountable for their role in this egregious crime.”

 Help support the Stop the Injustice Campaign by urging the House and Senate to act on these bills today. For more information about the Stop the InJustice Campaign, please click here.
