And yet, it’s happening at an alarming rate — not “under the radar” — not in shady nightclubs or dark back alleyways — but ONLINE.
Child sex trafficking in the U.S. is increasingly moving to the Internet, but you can make a difference today!
Websites like Backpage.com are now a primary venue for traffickers to sell, and for buyers to purchase, sex with minors.
- These websites hide behind an outdated and misinterpreted provision of the Communications Decency Act (CDA).
- To address this legal loophole, a bill was introduced in the Senate: S. 1693, the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act.
- Shared Hope is leading the way — in Congress, at the state level, and online — to ensure websites that facilitate sex trafficking will be held accountable for their role in this egregious crime!
