Sex Work is Work!

People engaged in sex work face unique barriers in seeking housing, healthcare, and freedom from incarceration and state violence. Law enforcement policies are set up to intensely police sex workers, while social and health services are set up to restrict access for current or former sex workers. All of these barriers come together to institutionalize the reproductive oppression of those engaged in sex work; or perceived to be engaged in sex work. So, how is our movement recognizing and combating this? Do we have the knowledge and tools to shift our movement towards destigmatizing, supporting, and centering those engaged in sex work? Do we value sex work as work? In this session, we will hear about the current state of sex workers rights and the move towards decriminalization.
