Justice


2018 Highlights

In 2018, the Foundation focused its advocacy efforts on holding Backpage.com accountable for its role as one of the largest online platforms for sex trafficking. In February, Grace Farms Foundation joined six other prominent organizations – YWCA Greenwich, Global Partnership to End Human Trafficking, The Underground, Connecticut Institute for Refugees and Immigrants, Center for Youth Leadership and Center for Human Trafficking Court Solutions –to draft a co-signed letter to Connecticut State Attorney General, George Jepsen, asking his office to investigate and file suit against Backpage.com for its knowing participation in the trafficking of Connecticut’s children.

This type of continued commitment to raise attention to the harm caused by Backpage was a crucial contribution to the enforcement action that shut down Backpage’s website on April 5th. The victory represents another step forward in the Foundation’s efforts to demonstrate that the eradication of this heinous crime can, and must, happen and represents critical progress in our fight to end modern-day slavery.
