It’s time for Alaska to, at the least, stop making safety a jail sentence for women in the sex trade. Thanks for your past support in helping to pass SB91 last year!
Rollbacks to SB91 are now being put forward in SB54.
Amnesty International just joined Human Rights Watch, the Global Commission on HIV and the Law, the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health, the United Nations Development Programme, UN Women and UNAIDS in recommending protecting the human rights of sex workers by decriminalizing every aspect of adult consensual sex work.
For my recent graduate research at the University of Alaska, I surveyed 40 people with recent experience in Alaska’s sex trade.
For the past 7 years I have worked with children, families, and young adults from various backgrounds and life situations dealing with a wide range of complex issues such as; trauma, depression, anxiety, developing healthy relationships, and sexual issues""My style as a therapist can best be described as eclectic, as I draw from a variety of techniques and theoretical orientations.
That being said I tend to be highly client centered, which means I assume clients are the authorities about their own systems.
In therapy, it's my job to describe what the science of psychology has to offer given the presenting problem and my professional experience in the area.
However, it's my clients who get to decide how this information is applicable to their lives.

We the undersigned urge you to repeal Alaska's anti-sex trafficking law.
