It has been in the news lately that the possibility of a red light district is coming to San Francisco, California, which will have a direct impact on the work we do. We at Redemption House of the Bay Area do not support this for multiple reasons.
It normalizes and condones exploitation.
It increases demand for trafficking victims.
It undermines efforts to combat sex trafficking.
It promotes gender inequality.
It can lead to increased crime and social problems.
