On the criminalization of sexuality....this topic includes but is not limited to LGBTQ issues, Sex work., and punitive apporach to women who become pregnant while using drugs or alcohol. There is an overarching patriarchal paternalism. So what can we do? Check out Fierce FIERCE developed the Save Our Space organizing platform to counter the displacement and criminalization of LGBTQ youth of color and homeless youth at the Christopher Street Pier and in Manhattan's West Village. They also work to support the Jersey 4. Check out their website. You can work to legalize Sex work and give sex workers the right to unionize and do the work they want without police harassment. You can check out the National Advocates for Pregnant Women at, National Advocates for Pregnant Women (NAPW) works to guarantee the basic human rights of health and welfare of all women, with a particular focus on pregnant women. Lots of info...also on this topic check out Opening Up: A Guide to Creating and Sustaining Open Relationships by Tristan Taormino which is available in the Faith Aloud Library to see the criminalization of polyamory.
