Press Conference: New Campaign Opposing Amnesty International

NCOSE Invites You to Attend, or to Listen Live Online

WHO: National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE)

EVENT: No Amnesty for Pimps, New Campaign Targets Amnesty International For Their Policy to Decriminalize Prostitution

WHEN: October 8, 2015 from 11:00 – 11:30am EST

WHERE: National Center on Sexual Exploitation, 1100 G St., NW Washington, DC 20005. You can also listen live at: http://endsexualexploitation.org/noamnesty/

WHY: NCOSE is launching a new campaign against entitled “No Amnesty For Pimps,” to oppose Amnesty International’s looming adoption of a policy in favor of decriminalizing prostitution. Amnesty International claims to “campaign for a world where human rights are enjoyed by all.” Yet, decriminalization of brothel-keeping and soliciting is a gift to pimps, sex traffickers, and sex buyers that confers a right to buy and sell other human beings. Such policies do not protect the human rights of persons in prostitution, but guarantee that their dehumanization and exploitation will continue. Panelists will include Dr. Laura Lederer, President and Founder of Global Centurion, Lisa Thompson, NCOSE Vice President of Education and Outreach, and Dawn Hawkins, NCOSE Executive Director.
