Position Paper: Implementation of the Law Prohibiting the Consumption of Prostitution and Addressing Sex Workers and Survivors of Prostitution
On March 21, 2022, we attended a meeting of the inter-ministerial team to implement the government program to eradicate prostitution, headed by Adv. Dina Dominitz of the Ministry of Justice. Prior to the meeting, we submitted a detailed position paper on the assistance that is not being enforced, such as police abuse and what we really need: stopping enforcement and increasing access to rights, stopping humiliation in TLA committees, deletion of police records, implementing real employment programs especially for trans mothers and women, and fighting poverty. The position paper was written in collaboration with Transiot Israel, Maavarim, HaMichlala, Tnuat Ahoti and Isha L’Isha.
