Pack the Hearing!

Research shows that over 80 percent of street-based sex workers experience violence in the course of their work. Criminal penalties have also made sex workers more vulnerable to violence and police abuse.

By removing criminal penalties, this legislation will reduce the vulnerability of sex workers to exploitation and violence, promote public health by improving access to services, and help address human trafficking.

Join us and testify in support of the ‘Community Safety and Health Amendment Act of 2019.’ Learn more at our Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/384009242291987/
