How do I make an issue heard by law makers?

Posted on Thu, Nov 3, 2016 at 4:00 AM

I am a sex worker. I know, boring right? We've heard the tale already, and mine doesn't have an interesting twist either, but I feel an overwhelming urge to make it a legitimate issue. I crave a way to tackle it legally rather then experiencing it as a conversational piece over drinks in a detached theological formula with people who already believe in its decriminalization. I'm so sick of speaking about it in an abstract way and always ending up with the same conclusion: “Yeah things need to change, but what can you do? It is what it is.” Someone point me in the right direction! I'm motivated, and I'm not embarrassed to put myself in front of my words. —Show Me How to be the Change I Want to See
