In a new public service announcement, Amy Schumer, Seth Meyers, AnnaLynne McCord, and other public figures lend their voices to fight sex trafficking online. The new PSA underscores the urgency to pass pending legislation that would allow trafficking victims to seek the justice they deserve.
ECPAT-USA continues the fight to update and clarify Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act in order to disrupt online sex trafficking of children and adult victims. We urge supporters to take action now, and join us in creating a world where no child is bought, sold, or used for sex.
I Am Jane Doe: The Film that Sparked the Movement
The new PSA follows the release of I Am Jane Doe, a documentary that chronicles the epic battle that several American mothers are waging on behalf of their middle-school daughters, victims of sex trafficking on Backpage.com. Narrated by Academy Award-nominee Jessica Chastain, directed by award-winning filmmaker Mary Mazzio, the film presents a fresh look at the human trafficking crisis, an issue that affects every community in America. The voices of the mothers and children in the film have helped to usher in legislative change in both the House and Senate.
