Alicia Keys Asking Fans to Help Stop Sex Trafficking in New York Today
Wed, 16 Nov 2011 10:16:24
Alicia Keys is quite the crusader. The singer and mom of son Egypt has asked her legion of fans to join her in protest and to campaign against The Village Voice's online classified pages, amid allegations the listings are part of a sex trafficking ring. Yikes.
Keys is supporting the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women (CATW), which is planning to gather outside the Manhattan office of The Village Voice on Wednesday, Nov. 16. That's today! The organization is asking the website editors to block sex advertisements on Backpage.com, as it is considered peddling prostitution.
Keys tweeted: "What if these were your daughters? SO CRAZY! Please stand up with CATW against sex trafficking on Nov 16 in NYC."
Are you a New Yorker planning to join Alicia Keys + CATW in protest of sex trafficking ads?
