End Demand

LIFT is part of the End Demand Campaign alliance. The End Demand campaign, launched yesterday, is calling on the government to adopt the Sex Buyer Law. This would completely decriminalise selling sex, criminalise buying sex and provide support and exiting services to people exploited through prostitution. The Sex Buyer Law has been adopted by three of the four countries with the highest ratings for gender equality worldwide. It’s been shown to reduce demand, change public attitudes and make countries more hostile places for traffickers.

Read more about the campaign here. We will be lobbying Tower Hamlets MPs Jim Fitzpatrick and Rushanara Ali, as well as Mayor Lutfur Rahman, to support the campaign. Please write to your MP here.
