Turning Interest Into Action
Dealing with the challenges of today requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks. A Safer Nevada emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support the community, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words. Most people agree that prostitution (we refer to it as "sex work") should be decriminalized or legalized in some form, but nobody ever does anything about it...except us.
Established in late 2021, we’re a social welfare organization seeking to educate the public about the importance of legalizing and decriminalizing sex work.
Both terms can seem confusing, but there's an easy difference. Legalization is what Nevada has in some counties in the form of brothels. Decriminalization is when prostitution can take different forms: a women working by herself, working in different areas, etc.
Both legal situations can co-exist and offer advantages and disadvantages. We believe brothels work good in rural counties and both decriminalization and brothels would be the ideal approach for an urban Vegas and Reno advocacy effort. The purpose of our org is to advocate for both. We want to help fix the current brothel system and advocate for a better system for sex workers and clients.
What's the difference?
Both have pros and cons
What we plan to do?
Our organization seeks to educate the public about sex work in the following ways:
Creating and publishing videos showing why decriminalization matters and how brothels can improve.
Hold public events to inform the public.
Have current and former sex workers speak about their life experiences.
Hold question and answer round tables.
The end result we hope to achieve with our organization is to create public awareness and create a more fostering, accepting society for sex workers.
Please support us today to help us bring awareness to sex work and the need for giving sex workers rights.
