I am invited every day to join a bewildering and diverse plethora of face book campaigns and societies. Some I join and some I don’t and some I actually get involved with and excited about. I was invited to join “I bet we can find 1,000,000 people who support decriminalizing sex work!” and it occurred to me that it would be quite an achievement to reach the target of 1,000,000 members. Opinion poll after opinion poll repeatedly tell us that the majority of the public in the UK support calls for legalisation but their voices like those of sex workers seem to be ignored by policy makers.
The psychological boost to sex workers and their allies and supporters if this level of support could be achieved would be enormous. So I would ask that if you are on face book then please join and ask everyone you know to join. Numbers count and we need the support of everyone to get involved in what ever little way that you can. Help sex workers achieve our aim which is recognition of our human rights and an end to state harassment and persecution. To protect sex workers from violence and intimidation, to involve sex workers in the battle to end exploitation and trafficking you have to give them rights and stop discriminating against them. You do that by decriminalising our industry.
