The many dangers to the health and safety of those involved in prostitution are well documented but does our legal system provide adequate resources to help these vulnerable people? Join the University of Maryland's School of Law Students Supporting the Women's Law Center [SSWLC] as they present an engaging panel discussion, From the Streets to the Courts: Examining the Relationship between Prostitution and the Legal System.
The dialogue, moderated by Baltimore Sun reporter Jonathan Bor, will explore how Maryland's legal system serves individuals involved in prostitution and consider possible improvements to the current system. Expert panelists include Judge Charlotte Cooksey of the Prostitution Reform Court; Sidney Ford, Executive Director of You Are Never Alone [YANA]; and a YANA friend. [Mark Godsey]
