While Senator Barack Obama rejects prostitution and trafficking as an abuse of human rights,  San Francisco voters are being urged to make our city a sanctuary for pimps and traffickers.
What we have to do is to create better, more effective tools for prosecuting those who are engaging in human trafficking and we have to do that within our country. Sadly, there are thousands who are trapped in various forms of enslavement, here in our country - oftentimes young women who are caught up in prostitution. So we've got to give prosecutors the tools to crack down on these human trafficking networks. Internationally, we've got to speak out and we've got to forge alliances with other countries to share intelligence, to roll up the financing networks that are involved in them. It is a debasement of our common humanity, whenever we see something like that taking place.
~ Senator Barack Obama

I exploited my body and gave myself to any man who wanted a piece. It was a vicious lifestyle. What these men don't know -- or maybe what they DO know -- is that prostitutes or streetwalkers or "happy hookers" are women with a deep sense of pain. Most have been abused in unimaginable ways.

Proposition K conceals the inhumane nature of prostitution and cripples the efforts of law enforcement, human rights groups and social service agencies to assist those who seek escape from sex-traffickers.
~ Kamala Harris, SF District Attorney

..there is nothing broad-minded about looking the other way when 14-year-old girls and boys sell themselves on the street and massage parlors are staffed by women who are being held against their will. These are not consenting adults.

Proposition K’s supporters are heavily funded by pimps and madams who will gain a great deal should the measure pass. As the voice of the women, children, men, the transgendered and immigrants who will be put in harm’s way should Prop K pass, our campaign needs your help.

Proposition K’s proponents argue that Proposition K will offer safety, but their claims couldn’t be further from the truth. This dangerous measure would de-fund the very programs that allow men, women and children trapped in prostitution to escape, and it will empower their captors by allowing them to operate in our city without fear of being caught or prosecuted.   The San Francisco D.A.’s office stated that: “The proposed measure would expressly bar the investigation and prosecution of human trafficking crimes.”  

Without your help, San Francisco voters won’t hear the truth about how dangerous this measure truly is.

Without your help, human trafficking and prostitution will be allowed to continue without the investigative tools local police need to stop it.
Please consider contributing to our campaign. With your support, we’ll tell San Franciscans the truth about the threats that come with de-funding the programs that help victims recover. With your help, we can protect the victims of human trafficking and punish those who prey on them.
