Much of our work fighting Sex Trafficking involves Backpage.com. While it is not the only site that promotes the sale of sex, it is by far represents the majority of the online sex trade in Houston and much of the United States. In our Museum of Modern-Day Slavery, we have an entire section dedicated to the domestic sex trade on Backpage. The arrest of the CEO of Backpage is an outstanding victory but there is much more work to be done!
