As public support for sex work decriminalization grows, we can expect more states and local jurisdictions to seek to reform laws around sex work. In this workshop, panelists will discuss lessons from the legislative efforts in New York, and Washington, DC to decriminalize sex work. These advocates from these early jurisdictions will describe the strategic considerations required by their distinct political and legal landscapes. We can expect to hear stories from the field, the challenges and victories, and examples of the practice of law in advancing social movements.
Speakers: Benjamin Brooks (Whitman-Walker Health); Puneet Cheema (Lambda Legal); Chinyere Ezie (Center for Constitutional Rights); Leila Raven (Hacking/Hustling); Jared Trujillo (Association of Legal Aid Attorneys (UAW Local 2325))
