Released on Human Rights Day (12/10/16), this video explains why it’s important to decriminalize sex work and keep people out of the criminal justice system. Trafficking happens in a wide range of low-wage industries, including sex work. In most places around the world, engaging in sex work can get you arrested. This actually makes it harder for sex workers and survivors of trafficking to seek help when they need it. This is the ninth video in the #TalkTraffic series, which I produced with Juhu Thukral and Suzanne Seltzer for the NY Anti-Trafficking Network. It was filmed and edited by Jordan and Cassie Timpy.
