Sex workers in Western Australia currently work under a range of criminal laws that do not apply to any other industry, currently contained in both the Criminal Code Compilation Act 1913 and the Prostitution Act 2000.
These laws compromise the health, safety and human rights of Western Australian sex workers. It is time for the full decriminalisation of sex work in Western Australia.
We the undersigned, sex workers past and present, our friends, families, allies and supporters request that the Western Australian government move forward with legislation decriminalising sex work in Western Australia.
The Decriminalise Sex Work in Western Australia petition to Parliament of Western Australia was written by People for Sex Worker Rights in WA and is in the category Civil Rights at GoPetition.
