I’ll be honest with you. I wouldn’t know an Alicia Keys song if it bit me in the face. However I do know that she’s an award-winning R&B artist who has an enormous fan base.
Recently Ms. Keys took to that fan base to garner their support for the November 16th protest against Village Voice Media for the human trafficking that takes place on backpage.com.
In a post on her Twitter.com page, Key writes, “What if these were your daughters? So Crazy! Please stand up with Catw against sex trafficking on Nov 16 in Nyc”.
The CATW she refers to is the aforementioned Coalition Against Trafficking in Women who are one of the organizations spearheading the protest.
While I’m very grateful that Ms. Keys is supporting the right for people not to be trafficked I would ask that she attend the protest to put even more weight behind it.
