Video: Combatting the Craigslist hysteria

Attorneys general in 17 states are hounding Craigslist, scapegoating the people who earn their living by advertising there and using the trafficking argument as an excuse for their own shameless pandering. We hate when that happens!

Sienna rocks!

Sienna Baskin, attorney with the Sex Workers Project, went on The Alyona Show Thursday to clarify things.  In this video, Baskin talks about a new law that actually helps trafficking victims.  She spoke about how laws against prostitution hurt sex workers,  and explained some of  the problems associated with legalization. (Why we prefer to advocate decriminalization!)

Also great to see Alyona Minkovski’s thoughtful response to the political fog surrounding Craigslist! Watch the video here.
