Lobby Day in support of 2012 No Condoms as Evidence Bill (S323/A1008) a success!
Check out the latest coverage of the press conference and lobby day here!
On Tuesday, April 17th advocates representing a broad coalition of public health and reproductive rights advocates, civil and human rights organizations, LGBT groups, and sex workers’ rights organizers met with dozens of legislators to ask for their support in moving SB323/A1008 to a vote this spring!
Advocates also released a brand new report summarizing the results of two studies documenting the impacts of police confiscating and prosecutors introducing condoms as evidence of intent to engage in prostitution! The report, Public Health Crisis: The Impact of Using Condoms as Evidence of Prostitution in New York City, was co-authored by members of the PROS Network, a coalition of organizations providing services and resources to people who are or are perceived to be involved in the sex trades.
Join us in demanding passage of legislation that would end the use of condoms as evidence of prostitution-related offenses!
