How can decriminalizing sex work help workers facing housing insecurity?
It would allow them to work without fear of criminalization. It would decrease stigmatization. Both criminalization and stigmatization greatly limit sex workers from seeking out resources when they are in need. It would allow sex workers more autonomy on their employment. By criminalizing sex work, the District actually makes it more difficult for sex workers and former sex workers to find alternative employment, report acts of violence, and practice safer sex.
