Sex Trafficking VIDEOS
Two years ago today the Department of Justice seized Backpage.com in an effort to end the illegal online sex industry in this country. It was widely seen as a huge victory in the effort to stop sex trafficking, the culmination of years of work by advocates. Two years later we asked some of 3 Generations anti-trafficking allies what they thought. Turns out the same problems still exist and in some cases it is even harder to find missing and exploited victims since the online industry has fragmented into myriad sites. One former trafficked friend who now works helping other survivors called the removal of Backpage “a f*cking disaster”. We see this as a definitional pyrrhic victory.
