Criminalization of Sex Work is a Human Rights Violation and a Labor Rights Concern
August 3 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
THIS WORKSHOP WILL BE LIVE STREAMED ON WOODHULL’S FACEBOOK PAGE. NO ONE IN THE AUDIENCE WILL BE FILMED BY US.
This session will discuss the various ways sex workers are criminalized under both prostitution and sex trafficking legislation and the outcomes it has for the everyday lives of those who engage in sex work. This presentation directly addresses the rights to housing, healthcare, safety, and dignity for sex workers regardless of race, class, substance use, and sexual or gender orientation. This session will inform on the better practices and policies for both sex workers and sex trafficking victims and explain the benefits of a future in which sex workers may lead the fight against sex trafficking instead of becoming its casual victims.
