DECRIMNOW June Week of Action

Sex work is work. 

DECRIMNOW invites you to join in our June Week of Action, a series of events where you can learn, connect with community, and take action to support sex workers and the efforts to decriminalize sex work in DC.

This action comes at a critical time, as sex workers in DC are facing dire safety risks due to recently passed federal legislation, FOSTA and SESTA, which criminalize the strategies many sex workers use to to work safely. Through this week of action, you'll learn more about the realities of sex work in DC, bust some sex work myths, and show that you support sex workers’ agency, access to housing, and reclamation of safety.
