Out in the Open statement on H. 568, 569, and 651 - A trio of proposed legislation affecting the lives of sex workers in Vermont 1/16/2020 Out in the Open stands with sex workers throughout Vermont, in all rural places, and in all places. Sex work is work. It is long past the time to decriminalize sex work in Vermont and we are pleased that this conversation is on the table during this legislative session. Justice for sex workers is interconnected and part of our fight for collective liberation. There are three bills being currently considered by the VT State Judiciary Committee: H. 568, 569, and 651.
