Decriminalize Sex Work

Speakers

Decriminalize sex work in the United States? It's the question presidential candidates are being pressured to answer. Many are in support. New York is considering legislation to fully decriminalize. Campaigning prosecutors are promising to decriminalize sex work. The question is on the table.
Sex work is the exchange of sexual services (sex, erotic dancing, pornography, etc.) for money or something of value.
Could decriminalization of all adult sex work benefit everyone, including sex workers and the entire community?
This panel will answer questions about our current system, ways to improve health and safety, and what we can do about it in our own online and offline communities.
