Int’l Whore’s Day Rally @ CaDemState Convention

This year International Whore’s Day coincides with the 2019 California Democratic Party State Convention.

Let’s make our voices heard on what’s happening to sex workers!  There is a crisis of poverty and criminalization in the US.  55% of people are poor or low-income in California.  More women, particularly mothers are going into prostitution as a result.  Daily we face arrest and jail with women of color, trans and street workers most targeted. Criminalization makes us vulnerable to violence — 60% of sex workers have experienced violence while working. CA bill SB 233 bill calls for an amnesty from arrest for sex workers reporting violence.

As the national momentum for our rights grows, decriminalization is within our reach. There will be at least 10 of the Democratic Presidential hopefuls in attendance, many of whom voted for #FOSTA, the federal bill which criminalized online advertising, which has undermined safer ways of working.

Rally with us to make our voices heard, for an end to poverty and criminalization, #RepealFOSTA, support CA bill SB 233.  Bring your signs and banners!
