Council Members Chin, Viverito and Levin join faith leaders from across the City during protest calling on The Village Voice to shut down its Backpage.com adult classified section, which they say includes ads linked to child sex-trafficking. In this image, protesters march to the front door of The Voice to deposit sneakers of young girls in a symbolic gesture meant to shame the newspaper.
