Take Action – Tell Nevada Legislators to End Legal Brothels
Nevada is the only state in America with legalized brothel prostitution, in select counties. As of February 2018, there were at least 21 brothels active in Nevada.
While some may claim that legalization provides better regulation and increased safety – the truth is that sexual violence, racism, and socioeconomic disadvantages are inextricable from the prostitution experience.
Even when it is legalized, it is impossible to disentangle exploitation from prostitution.
Legalized Prostitution in Nevada has led to an increase (not decrease) in the state’s illegal sex trade.
In fact, Nevada has the highest rates of an illegal sex trade in the country, adjusted for population. It is 63% higher than the next highest state of New York and double that of Florida.
