Stop Trafficking of Girls and Boys

Trafficking_photoIt's a basic fact of the moral universe that children should not be sold for sex, yet boys and girls are trafficked right here in the U.S. Sign our petition asking Village Voice Media -- Backpage.com's parent company -- to shut down the Adult section of Backpage.com.

Village Voice Media must immediately shut down the Adult section of Backpage.com so that no girls or boys are trafficked via the Web site, despite safeguards that have been implemented.
