Sex Workers Rights Joint Statement In Response to U.S Online Policing and Censorship of Adult Content 

The Desiree Alliance has serious concerns over the ongoing attacks against sexual freedoms of adult-oriented industries.  We view the right for consensual sexual freedoms as fundamental civil liberties every citizen is afforded to engage in without legal recourse, without policing, and without moral repercussions.  These intrusions and deprivations debase personal privacy and equality that censor the First Amendment right guaranteed to every citizen.  The targeting, profiling, arrests, and convictions against vulnerable populations inherently impair the health and well-being of communities that have limited or no access to services that provide safe working environments and protections against state-sanctioned violence.  When government begins to criminalize sex in the guise of morality and jettisons legal language, we question the validity and reasoning as to why government interference belongs in the consensual labor of sex and online advertising sites that provide safety from second and third party interferences and exploitations.  (Cont.)

The Women’s March represented all women but what are the conditions of their support?

As sex workers stood in full support with a statement issued by the march organizers, it was quietly removed in the middle of the night, then re-added with a exploitation statement of trafficking. Here’s our response to the addition/condition of their pseudo support

The Desiree Alliance appreciates the support of the Women’s March for sex workers’ rights. We represent the many intersections that cross this profession and continuously strive to include those voices in our work. Click here to read more:  https://docs.google.com/document/d/1hvIeZBOZWS04kI8jc6Xlxwj67VPZ3wHhY2Shuu2prI/edit 

Selling Snake Oil: Anti-trafficking Awareness Campaigns

By Cristine Sardina – Director, Desiree Alliance

How effective are anti-trafficking awareness campaigns surrounding sex trafficking? Scare tactics of victim-age numbers, hip buzzwords, dying blue streaks in hair, Modern Day Slavery memes, and #Not1More hashtags, are just a few of the new-age trafficking awareness campaigns aimed to educate the public that we are (un)aware of what is really going on. Stock photos show same-person models in different poses of bondage, dirty male hands of Black/brown color, threatening dark-skinned black men standing menacingly behind pallid young girls (many times with objects of enforcement i.e. bats, rope, chains, etc.), barcodes tattooed on the backs and necks of young girls, dirty-faced and half-naked girls holding teddy bears, doe-eyed blonde-haired girls with fear in their eyes, etc., all appealing to uninformed communities that your mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, … could possibly be sex trafficked – if only you become aware of your unawareness Read more:  https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Ak4Q6Fm5A2tAGamcRwIGHC6jD53lUqlOZOB7IGxgt80/edit
