Relying on AmazingCauses, STOP Online Exploitation Demands an End to Online Listings Promoting Human Trafficking
In a recent article in the Vancouver Sun, Sgt. Tim Shields, media relations officer for the RCMP in British Columbia, said "There is no question the Internet is being used as a tool at times to prostitute or pimp out young people, just as it is being used by pedophiles to locate children as potential victims. The pedophile of the past would go to a playground. But the pedophile of today goes to the Internet. The same is true with many forms of prostitution."
"Because of the constantly growing number of criminals using Internet listings, such as Craigslist and AdultFriendFinder, to sell human beings, it has become extremely easy to go online and buy someone for sex," says Richard Lepoutre, President of STATWARE, Inc. Lepoutre is a founder at Stop Online Exploitation, set up in May 2009, by a growing coalition of human rights groups - including Ahava Kids - private businesses and U.S. citizens.
"Stop Online Exploitation chose AmazingCauses because our coalition is aware of the increased impact we'll get by uniting direct mail with our planned social media and other online direct marketing campaigns," says Lepoutre, "AmazingCauses' web-to-print engine allows us to combine web-based message/issue broadcasting with the delivery of large quantities of postcards to our intended targets."
