This Action Plan is based on the Equality Model, this is what we support and work to see implemented. The actions fall into six categories:
those who are experiencing commercial sexual exploitation
and coordinate these laws across the Kansas City metro
on demand and develop assurances that those laws will be implemented
a holistic approach that is scalable
High Quality Services
for those who are experiencing commercial sexual exploitation
all factors that drive people into prostitution
The Equality Model
decriminalizes victims of commercial sexual exploitation and supports providing services to survivors, while criminalizing buyers and traffickers to the fullest extent. This is an evidence-based solution for significantly reducing commercial sexual exploitation.
Kansas Senate Bill 59
Kansas Senate Bill 59 modifies the crimes of selling sexual relations, promoting the sale of sexual relations and buying sexual relations by changing terminology from "sexual relations" to "a sex act."
We believe that commercial sexual exploitation is not "relational", which implies equality and mutuality.
It is a transaction and an abuse of power and control.
If you are a resident of Kansas, we ask that you contact your senator and encourage them to bring SB 59 to attention.
An email template is provided, along with a list of contact information for Kansas Senators by district.
