A group of people gathered today outside the Village Voice building to protest Backpage.  I focused my attention on the group of sex workers rights advocates that came to counter protest the event.  It was a really incredible display of how I feel free speech should be- two opposing groups that despite their clashing views managed to not only exist peacefully but took the time to listen to what each other had to say.  It makes me happy to see that there are people out there that recognize that you can’t force people to change.  It is all about education.  More photos to come…
