4 More Girls Found Trafficked on Backpage! Count now at 141! PLEASE DO SOMETHING!
At least 4 more girls were found trafficked on Backpage. Two in California and two in Tennessee.
VillageVoicePimps.com is keeping track of the cases across the country here: http://villagevoicepimp.com/
The pain and terror of these young girls means nothing to Village Voice. What is important to Village Voice's Jim Larkin, Michael Lacey and Tony Ortega is one thing alone - Money.
Therefore, there are 2 simple things you can do today.
1. Contact Andria Winters 202-228-3998 Andria_Winters@kirk.senate.gov in U.S. Senator Kirk’s office – She is the contact receiving the responses from 40 Village Voice advertisers who were urged by 4 U.S. Senators: Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), Richard Blumenthal (D- Conn.), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and John Cornyn (R-Tex.); to use their economic might to influence Village Voice. Ask Andria to email you all the responses from the advertisers.
2. Do a Flash Picket on Village Voice newspapers or their advertisers like Lynn Robertson of Westland, Michigan has been doing. And then put your photos on the world wide web to communicate your outrage! Send the photos and your message to the advertisers!
