June 2005

You are invited to a “Community Dialogue on the Criminalization of Survival: Poverty, Violence and Prostitution”
Come hear about the growing movement for protection, not prosecution, of sex workers and for resources so no one is vulnerable to violence

WHEN: Thursday, June 9 at 7pm

WHERE: St. Boniface Church, 133 Golden Gate Ave., San Francisco (between Jones & Leavenworth, near Civil Center BART)

Donation $5.00, no one turned away.

Call ahead if you need childcare or Spanish translation.

Following from the San Francisco Task Force on Prostitution Report, the SF Board of Supervisors (BOS) passed a resolution that those accused of rape and other violent crimes against sex workers should be arrested and vigorously prosecuted, and that the $7.6 million spent on enforcing anti-prostitution laws be redirected into resources and services. And resulting from a campaign for the rights of homeless people, the DA agreed to an Amnesty which withdraws all pending warrants against homeless people for so-called nuisance “crimes”, the same laws used against sex workers on the street.

The community dialogue will give an update on efforts for prevention of violence against prostitute women caused by criminalization, including implementation of the BOS resolution and extending the Amnesty to sex workers. The Community Dialogue aims to bring together: sex workers; church workers; community residents; the legal community; organized labor; ex-cons; youth; LGBT; communities of color and immigrants; homeless people; anti-war, anti-poverty and anti-racist activists; prisoner rights groups and others working for justice and to protect the rights of anyone criminalized by poverty to discuss these vital issues.

Come help prioritize: the protection of sex workers over prosecution and jail; an end to violence against sex workers and all women, and for justice for all of us made vulnerable to violence and other degradation by poverty and lack of resources. While billions is spent on war and occupation, practically nothing is available for women and communities!

Sponsored by In Defense of Prostitute Women’s Safety, a project of US PROStitutes Collective and Legal Action for Women.

Co-sponsored by: Wages Due Lesbians; Women of Color in the Global Women’s Strike.

Attending labor organizing school for those who of us who are serious about bringing change to our status is essential. Identifying
our issues and skills as well as how to enact effective and appropriate campaigns locally and internationally has to happen so we can be more effective in erotic body politic to successfully lobby the public, legislators to end the criminalization of our occupation.
