Open Letter to the Liberal Party of Canada – Decriminalize Sex Work: Support Resolution #2764

Voir ce en Français

It is now well recognized, not just by sex workers but by a wide range of human rights organizations including Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, the Global Alliance Against Traffic in Women, and the Center for Health and Gender Equity, United Nations bodies such as the UN Development Programme, the Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS, and the Global Commission on HIV and the Law, and courts that punitive laws and policies governing sex work, including the criminalization of some or all aspects of sex work, lead to numerous violations of sex workers’ human rights.

The open letter calls on members of the Liberal Party of Canada to support resolution #2764 at the upcoming policy convention in April 2018.
