Removing Criminal Penalties for Sex Work in D.C.
August 17, 2019 @ 10:45 am - 12:15 pm
In 2017 and again in 2019, Councilmember David Grosso had introduced legislation in the District of Columbia to remove criminal prohibitions on sex work. Councilmember Grosso will discuss these efforts to reform criminal laws and share lessons from a legislator’s perspective, including what makes effective advocacy and partnership between lawmakers and grassroots organizing campaigns. Participants will gain a better understanding of how momentum has built in D.C. for ending the criminalization of sex work and develop new insights into legislative change.
