Sex Work Policy & Law: A Public Forum

Victoria's Sex Work Laws have a major influence on the working conditions, health and human rights of sex workers.  

Yet it is clear to sex workers that these laws have been implemented with little to no consultation with us because they seem so far removed from the reality of our work.

This public forum brings together the voices of sex workers to emphasise the lived experience of stigma, discrimination, heightened risk and undermined agency created by sex work legislation, the need for reform and the lessons we can learn from other jurisdictions 

This is a free public event.
