On January 9th, 2017 a United States Senate Subcommittee published a report on the online classifieds ads website Backpage.com finding the website knowingly facilitated online child sex trafficking under the “adult” section of the website.
Find the report the Senate Subcommittee published on Backpage.com here.
As a result of the committee’s finding, Backpage.com shut down the adult section of their website in the United States on January 10th. However, Backpage.com is still operating an “adult jobs” section of their website and claiming the protection of “internet free speech.”
Because of this, End Slavery Now urges you to boycott the use of Backpage.com and tell your friends why you are doing it. Use and share the hashtag #BoycottBackpage on social media and help fight against child sex trafficking.
