On January 11th, Backpage.com announced the shutdown of its ‘adult’ section of the classifieds website! This announcement came on the eve of Backpage.com’s executives and general counsel appearing at a hearing today before the U.S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations (PSI) to answer questions about a report which shows Backpage.com’s ”adult services” section routinely advertised sex trafficked children for commercial sex acts.

Thanks to all of our NAHT allies fo helping to achieve more victories like the one today!
