Preventing Violence and Arrest in Sex Work in Rhode Island
There is a movement around the world to decriminalize sex work. Amnesty International
recommends that governments decriminalize consensual sex work and develop laws that
protect workers from harm, exploitation, and coercion. But the debate around sex work
continues to be heated. In this webinar, Keynote Speaker Manisha Shah, a notable researcher
of sex work around the world, will address her research into Rhode Island’s 1980
decriminalization of indoor sex work and the sharp turn of events when the state again criminalized
indoor sex work in 2009. She will speak on the impacts of criminalization on the health and wellbeing of sex workers then and
now. Join Dr. Shah and a panel to discuss how to prevent violence and arrest in sex work in
Rhode Island.

KEYNOTE: Manisha Shah, Professor of Public Policy and Director Global Lab for Research in
Action, University of California - Los Angeles
