Sex Work and Trafficking Policy Impact Committee
September 25, 2017
Prioritizing Safety for Sex Worker Policy
- Still no meeting with Chief Scott.
- Alix will reach out to Commission to see if can get this policy on the agenda for a commission meeting;
- Minouche will ask Dianna to check with Chief Scott about rescheduling;
- Carol will ask Stephany to approach someone on the Board about local ordinance option;
- Alix’s team have been coding and entering reports into data base, so soon will be ready for analysis by statistician.
- None of trafficking cases have been identified through “sting” operations but through tips from others or victims coming forward themselves.
- Hopefully will have data to share by November meeting.
Priorities for 2017-2018
- Frustrated with outreach on nail salons – nervous that doing it wrong; Don’t see effort from Task Force to work with massage establishments about positive actions-
- Consistent, institutional response – having difficult conversations?
- Agenda item on having hard conversations – need to understand even if we don’t agree;
- Talking to the media – give examples on language to idea; positives and negatives – use a case study of an actual study; (maybe for retreat)
- Immigration – ask someone from OCEIA to present at Task Force
- Removal of condoms as evidence of racketeering in trafficking cases – (part of federal law) – how to address in San Francisco?
- What are implications of SB 1193 for institutions that are required to put them up – what are effective outreach techniques? Does it reinforce stereotypes?
- Get input about involving the community;
- Work with attorneys who represent the sex industry
- How many convictions were vacated?
- Ask Public Defender about stats
MK update on outreach in Mission.
