President Trump signed FOSTA into law on April 11, the Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act of 2017. Seth and JJ discuss the story of Backpage.com, and how it led to FOSTA being passed. Survivors have advocated for and against the law. While it has potential to be a useful tool against traffickers, there are concerns about how it may negative impact sex workers and free speech, due to ambiguous language and focusing on both sex trafficking and prostitution.
