McGinn Meets With Other Mayors About Backpage’s Juvenile Prostitution Problem

At a press conference at city hall last week, Mayor Mike McGinn said he was meeting with other mayors from around the country as part of his efforts to get Village Voice Media-owned Backpage.com to crackdown on juvenile prostitution ads.

Mayor McGinn’s down on the US Conference of Mayors in LA today, where he apparently met with mayors from Salt Lake City, Oakland, Pembroke, Madison, WI, St Louis, Louisville, and Burnsville, MN—as well as Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore’s anti-human trafficking DNA foundation—to discuss Backpage.

No word yet on how McGinn’s coalition-building efforts went, but we’ll see what we can find out.
