In this episode, we return to New Orleans to speak with Lakeesha Harris of Women With A Vision about sex worker organizing and the decriminalization of consensual sex work. We look at the history of prostitution and sex work in the US, recent victories in shifting culture and policies around sex work, the struggle against sex trafficking narratives, and decriminalization as a labor and abolitionist struggle. Throughout the episode, we hear from sex workers who testified in support of HB67 to decriminalize sex work in Louisiana, the first time such a bill has been heard by the Louisiana state legislature.
