STOP THE RAIDS!
LA Super Bowl 2022
Stop harmful raids by law enforcement
Super Bowl LVI was held at the SoFi Stadium in LA , Sunday February 13, 2022. The stadium is in the predominantly Black and Brown community of Inglewood, who are facing gentrification.
Law enforcement uses large sporting events to target sex workers and their clients under the guise of anti-trafficking. Increased police scrutiny does not reduce human trafficking and harms vulnerable communities.
All sex workers and their clients in the greater Los Angeles Area should be aware of potential sting operations to avoid getting arrested. Law enforcement targets communities of color at higher rates for prostitution related offenses in Los Angeles county.
Mainstream media conflates sex work with trafficking with the FALSE narrative that all sex workers are victims and that our clients are predators.
Sex workers are fighting back! Stand with sex workers!
Every year, federal and local law enforcement, conduct harmful, dangerous raids on sex workers in advance of the Super Bowl, under the guise of fighting sex trafficking.
But year after year these Super Bowl Raids fail to identify victims, and only disrupt and destroy the lives of sex workers.
