Beyond Sex Work Decriminalization: Possibilities and Priorities for Marginalized Sex Workers
In collaboration with Woodhull Freedom Foundation, the Oregon Sex Workers’ Committee (OSWC) is honoured to be hosted by the Johns Hopkins Center for Public Health and Human Rights to discuss the impact of sex work decriminalization in the state of Oregon and beyond. The OSWC advocates for decriminalization as an essential component of a public health framework that recognizes and protects the human rights of sex workers, but also emphasizes that decriminalization is not the end of the road for sex workers’ rights: it’s just one of many important steps in the long pursuit of equity and justice. Tonight, we have assembled a panel of experts to talk about the ways the criminalization of sex work worsens health inequities, and why decriminalization (rather than legalization or end demand) is the policy framework that best empowers marginalized communities.
