Sex Work, Sex Trafficking, & Labor Rights Zine

This zine is a primer on sex work, the myths and facts of sex trafficking, and how viewing these issues through the lens of labor rights rather than moral panic creates a path to meaningful support for all people working in the sex trades. It includes an overview of the history of anti-trafficking legislation in the United States, various legal models, and a section on how to be an effective ally for both survivors of sex trafficking and all others participating in the sex trades. With copious citations and further reading resources, this primer provides a concise overview of the issues currently faced in the fight for sex workers’ rights, and plentiful opportunities for the reader to deepen their understanding.
