Take Action

ALERT

CALL TO ACTION

In light of the United Nations initiatives to promote prostitution, we ask the Secretary General of the United Nations to initiate a UN Convention to make prostitution a violation of human rights.

Please email The Secretary General of the United Nations with copies to the High Commissioner of Human Rights and the Director of UN Women (phone, address, email at the end of this document) let them know that the normalization of prostitution is the normalization of violence against women, and that we are asking for new human right law from the United Nations while we oppose any attempts to legalize or decriminalize prostitution.  

Send your protests and concerns to:

United Nations Secretary General, Ban Ki-Moon Phone: 1-212-963-1234, FAX 1-212-963-7055

With copies to:

Chief Navi Pellay, United Nations High Commissioner of Human Rights, Email: InfoDesk@ohchr.org
