Decriminalize people who sell sex, but NOT pimps and johns
RALLY Monday, March 11th @ 10AM @ City Hall
Join NOW-NYC and the New York Alliance Against the Legalization of Prostitution — a coalition of women’s rights organizations, direct service providers, faith-based community leaders, sex trade survivors, and concerned New Yorkers to voice opposition to proposed legislation that would fully decriminalize prostitution, including pimping and sex buying.
We agree that individuals who sell sex should not be punished or criminalized, but wholesale legalization is not the answer. Let’s find a middle ground that mandates comprehensive services for people engaging in the sex trade but draws the line at legalizing pimping and opening the doors to a friendly climate for sex trafficking to occur.
