Backpage.com and websites like it rake in massive amounts of money from online sales; yet even as they facilitate the sex trafficking of minors, they face no liability under the law for the damage inflicted on children and families.
With your help, our Law and Policy team is fighting to change this terrible injustice.
- Backpage.com took down their adult-services page after their most recent loss in court, but the sex trafficking activity has simply moved to other pages of their website.
- So far, Backpage.com has escaped liability. Their victims have not yet received justice.
- Now, a case out of the State of Washington is scheduled to go to trial mid-May.
- Tragically, very few groups have been willing to speak out against Backpage.com. Shared Hope was on the forefront of this battle and is committed to fight to the very end.
Please stand with us to battle Backpage.com, call for legal justice for victims of online sex trafficking, and continue all of our critically important efforts to prevent the trafficking of women and children.
