Woodhull Freedom Foundation will host a special virtual Human Rights Commission titled “Fact of Fiction: Sex Trafficking at the Super Bowl” on Thursday, February 10 at 14:00 UTC.
The panel will focus on debunking the myths about sex trafficking surrounding high-profile public events such as the Super Bowl and providing testimony about the ways these common misconceptions put sex workers’ lives in danger while reducing their access to important social services.
Panelists and speakers will include impacted sex workers, local criminal justice reform advocates, labor rights activists, health care experts, and researchers, discussing sex workers’ rights and the need for achieving governmental policies that protect consensual sex workers while addressing sexual labor exploitation.
“At Woodhull’s Human Rights Commission on February 10th, we’ll be talking about how the conflation of consensual adult sex work with ‘sex trafficking’ creates more harm than good. The legislation and cultural attitudes arising from this misunderstanding strips exploited workers of their autonomy while making consensual sex workers more vulnerable to exploitation and violating their most fundamental human rights. That has to change!” said Alex Andrews, Director, Woodhull’s Human Rights Commissions.
