Meanwhile, in Other Countries

UNANIMA works with CATW (Coalition Against Trafficking in Women), the first international NGO to focus on human trafficking. Their website, www.catwinternational.org/ has many useful resources in several languages. CATW has been very instrumental in giving New York City / state some of the best anti-trafficking laws in the United States, primarily because there are some smart, dedicated women lawyers in the group. On a hot day this past June 20, there were simultaneous demonstrations in New York, Phoenix, and Vancouver Canada, against Backpage.com. Backpage (owned by Village Voice Media) both facilitates and profits from sex trafficking. Go to the website backpage.com to find your state or country. Look under “Adult” to see the kinds of things they advertise.
