Coverage of the impact of COVID-19 on sex workers. Should they be eligible for economic relief? Our guests are Niki Adams and Rachel West. Niki Adams is a spokeswoman for the English Collective of Prostitutes, a network of women working in different areas of the sex industry ” both on the streets and indoors ” which has campaigned since 1975 for decriminalization of sex work, sex workers’ safety, and the resources for sex workers to leave the sex trade if they want to. Rachel West is a spokeswoman for the San Francisco-based US PROStitutes Collective (US PROS), part of the International Prostitutes Collective and a multiracial network of women who work or have worked in different areas of the sex industry. Founded in 1982, US PROS campaigns for the decriminalization of prostitution and for justice, protection and resources so that no woman, young person or man is forced into prostitution through poverty or violence.
