Dear Editor:

This past spring your paper brought to light ads promoting prostitution in the Queens Tribune. The publisher of the Tribune hid behind free speech and also said they would do what they could to end trafficking. As someone who has worked overseas, in safe houses, rehabilitating and educating trafficked and sexually abused girls, I find these ads disgusting.

The paper has now gone even further by recently placing Tribune-sponsored coupons, offering discounts when johns mention the Tribune at a particular agency. This directly contradicts their promise to stop trafficking. Instead they have chosen to partner with pimps for profit. This is truly despicable and should be made known to the wider public.
