We are proud to serve as local amicus counsel on behalf of the Coalition Against Trafficking In Women (CATW) in the Washington Supreme Court matter J.S., S.L., & L.C. v. Village Voice Media Holdings, L.L.C. The brief is available here.
Since Craigslist removed its “Adult Services” sections, backpage.com, a U.S. based corporation owned by Village Voice Media Holdings LLC, has become traffickers' website of choice. CATW continues to work to create an internet free of sex trafficking, through its campaign to hold backpage.com accountable for the untold number of human beings whose exploitation continues to be carried out through the ads hosted on this platform.
Our work on behalf of CATW is part of Galanda Broadman PLLC's firm commitment to fighting violence and exploitation of women and children, particularly in Indian Country, where such exploitation is particularly prevalent.
