The criminalization of sex work has cost too many New Yorkers – especially Black, Brown, LGBTQ+, and immigrant New Yorkers – their livelihoods for too long. Criminalizing sex work does not protect vulnerable people. Instead, it exacerbates risks and forges additional pathways for harm. To truly reduce harm and protect the health and safety of sex workers, we must decriminalize adult consensual sex work.
