Mayor Bill de Blasio broached a few heavy topics in his morning briefing Tuesday, March 16, when he spoke on the realities of sex trafficking, the need for decriminalization of sex work, and more protections for sex workers in the city. He emphasized punishing traffickers while supporting survivors with city resources. According to the foundation, the COVID pandemic has resulted in violence, harassment, and abuse of sex workers worldwide. Stay-at-home orders have cut people off from steady work or health services, and caused others to perceive sex workers as vectors for the spread of COVID, said the foundation.

De Blasio stated the city is forming a task force to focus on health and safety needs of sex workers and review NYPD policies that identify and investigate human trafficking. This is not the first time New York City and State have taken on this legislative battle to change the stigmas around sex work and address the dangers of trafficking. In JuneBrooklyn state Senator Julia Salazar and Manhattan Assemblymember Richard Gottfried sparked a storm of criticism when they introduced The Stop Violence in the Sex Trades Act, which strove to stop penalizing adult sex workers for certain prostitution offenses.
