For the last
century, year after year, sex workers in SF have been hounded, arrested
and jailed, evicted, raped and even murdered, their children taken
away. Those of us who have least - often women of color - have received
the brunt of this persecution. Why has our city famed for being open
minded allowed this injustice to continue? Now we can make a change
and win greater protection, well-being and safety for all. Join a
cross section of communities who want to make this happen!
Speakers include: sex workers and sex worker organizations, criminal
attorneys Nedra Ruiz, Stephanie Adraktas, Stuart Hanlon and David
Bigeleisen, Conference of Delegates of California Bar Association,
Dr. Jeffrey D. Klausner, SF Green Party, neighborhood residents, church
representatives, candidates for board of supervisor and other politicians,
the LGBT community, labor representatives, and others.
* Prop K was put on the ballot by more than 12,000 San Franciscans
to ensure that basic human and civil rights are extended to sex workers.
It follows the recommendations of the path breaking SF Task Force
* Prop K calls on the police to prioritize sex workers' safety by
vigorously enforcing coercion, extortion, battery, rape and other
* Prop K will end the criminalization of sex workers, many of whom
are mothers trying to support their families in increasingly hard
times. Criminalization traps sex workers in prostitution, increases
vulnerability to violence and sets sex workers apart from the rest
of the community.
* Prop K is an anti-racist initiative. Women of color are disproportionately
arrested under the prostitution laws and make up the majority of women
* Prop K will not stop the prosecution of traffickers but will protect
immigrant women from being targeted for arrest. According to the Public
Defender, not one trafficker has been prosecuted in SF. However, many
sex workers of color have been rounded up and deported.
