voting yes on prop K would be a long over due social justice action to protect the lives of consensual adult sex workers
who have made this city great! Imagine creating a sanctuary city where sex workers are protected alongside undocumented workers, where sex work is given the same labor protections as other forms of work.

Is that offensive to you? Shouldn’t we lead the way in ending
criminalization and state control of our bodies? Arresting and
jailing sex workers does nothing to help the people involved access protection and resources that they need.

Does Gavin Newsom have you convinced that every massage parlor is a den of trafficked Asian sex slaves? Did you know that there are many sex workers of Asian descent that are not forced or kidnapped that are adversely affected by this racist propaganda, and by raids of their workplaces in the interest of rescuing them? Did you know that Chinese prostitutes are part of the rich legacy of San Francisco’s pioneers?

LET’S TALK ABOUT THIS and MORE AT the PROP K Q &A and Mariko Passion LEGAL Fundraiser

MARIKO PASSION, founder of the Los Angeles chapter of Sex Workers Outreach Project is a San Francisco native artist and activist formerly known as “the asianprincess.” She was arrested in a routine, expensive, overstaffed police sting in LA by a cop who solicited her through her Craigslist ad. Her lawyer David Bigeleisen is a San Francisco native and firmly believes in the fight for decriminalization of prostitution and abolishing the death penalty.

Donations to help support the costly and long battle of fighting for your rights can be expensive, unless the community that supports the issue contributes. All donations are tax deductible. A portion of the fundraiser will go towards supporting PROP K.
