Interesting Videos regarding the SCC Decision and How You Can Help

Hello Naked Truthers!

For those who are interested in learning more about the Bedford decision, I am posting the following links.
 If you would like to take action, here are ways you can help:

1. Meet with your Member of Parliament. To figure out who your MP is, you can go here: http://bit.ly/1cuJOxO

Then email and/or phone their constituency office in your community and request a meeting. As a constituent, they should agree to meet with you (although there is no guarantee). The House of Commons is on a break from March 10 to March 21 so that is a good time to try to get a meeting with them because they don’t have to be in Ottawa.

It is important that we try to meet with as many MPs as possible so that they know that people in their riding care about this issue, and so that we can educate them on the importance of decriminalization. If you want some help with info sheets and other materials you could take to a meeting, we will have a list put together shortly that we will circulate, but you can also take a look at the links below to generate some key messages for your meetings. 

If you do meet with your MP, please let us know so we can feed that information into the national strategy. 

2. Mobilize your community to fill out the federal government’s online consultation questions before March 17, 2014. Talk to your family and friends or send an email out to your contacts or your organizations membership. A number of organizations have posted guidelines on their website, so here is a few that you could share:

3. Engage the media. Writing letters to the editor when you see something about sex work in the media is really important. Also, writing comments on online news sites and on Facebook/Twitter is great too. Press releases about sex workers’ rights issues would be fantastic. The more the better!
