The Rebecca Project for Human Rights based out of Washington D.C. took out a half page ad in the San Francisco Chronicle asking craigslist to shut down the adult services section in order to put a stop to human trafficking and child prostitution.
The newspaper ad was an open letter to Craigslist founder Craig Newmark from girls identified only as “AK,” who is from the East Coast, and “MC,” who is from the West Coast, Saada Saar said.
The entire open letter can be read here as written by Malika Saada Saar the Executive director of the Rebecca Project for Human Rights.
The problem is the letter is directed to Craig Newmark the founder of craigslist. Last time I checked, and I could be wrong about this, Craig Newmark was now just a spokesperson for craigslist with the true power lying with craigslist CEO Jim Buckmaster.
How long will Craig be willing to keep taking one for the team so to speak when it’s Jim Buckmaster’s decision to make?
