Update Prop K – 91,017 votes and counting

We very proud that 91,017 people (counted so far) voted for us and K secured over 42% of the votes!

The tally as of Wednesday afternoon, Nov 5, is:
Yes 91,017 42.43 %
No 123,508 57.56 %

In a crucial way we are winning, because we clearly demonstrate that sex workers are in the forefront of the political process. The coalition and alliances have been very strong!

In 2004 Measure Q in Berkeley secured 36% of the vote, so as you see we are ascending. It is clear that in the long run sex workers rights and participation is rising. Decriminalization is happening!

There was an amazing response from sex workers, sex worker groups and many allies including labor, health and human rights advocates around the country (and some from around the world!), contributing, emailing, fund raising, phone calls, and rooting for us! We had wonderful volunteers from all quarters, and we made many new friends who will be supporting us in the long run.

Thank you to all our donors and supporters. This meant so much to all of us! You kept our spirits up and allowed us to mount this campaign!

The elections for Board of Supervisors went in a liberal direction so that portends good support for new plans!
