October 23rd there will be a protest against Amnesty International, and if you are in the DC area we invite you to come join us!
Washington National Office
600 Pennsylvania Ave. SE,
Washington, D.C. 20003
WHEN: Friday October 23, 2015/12:00 PM-2:00 PM
WHY: Amnesty International’s International Board is developing a policy document that it is believed will support full decriminalization of prostitution. Decriminalization of prostitution is one of the world’s most disastrous approaches to the sex trade because: 1) it is a gift to pimps and sex buyers allowing them to carry out their activities as mere “sex business operators” and “customers,” and 2) it normalizes sexual violence and exploitation as a “job.” If approved, Amnesty’s support of decriminalized prostitution will undermine the human rights of persons in the sex trade (the majority of whom are females), and give impunity to perpetrators of sexploitation.
