Decriminalize Sex Work in Oregon – Update
There is no longer a legislative effort to decrim sex work in Oregon (the March 18th Salem-hearing was postponed and then canceled, HB3088 is dead.
INSTEAD: research polling shows that Oregon VOTERS could be the ones to make history if they support a ballot measure to Decrim Oregon sex work.
NEXT: We have to explain it to the voters. We need media coverage and support explaining WHY DECRIM is HARM REDUCTION.

Why Decrim of Sex Work?
– For better allocation of resources: to address trafficking, coercion, force, underage labor, violence against sex workers and the unhoused.
– As part of progressive criminal justice reform: stop arresting consenting adults and labeling them sex offenders or felons, making it harder to find conventional jobs, and housing, etc.
– For a sexually healthier culture: transactional, safer touch between adults can be therapeutic and healing, and reduces violent crime and STI transmission.
A decrim-Oregon website is coming soon, I will update everyone ASAP.
