POWER HOUR against #FOSTA starts NOW! Support sex workers, survivors and free speech online by demanding your reps say NO to House Bill 1865! #SurvivorsAgainstFOSTA

URGENT! TODAY at 5pm the Rules Committee in the House is marking up a bill, “FOSTA” (H. 1865) which would make it a federal crime for facilitating sexual exchange online punishable by up to 10 years. #SurvivorsAgainstFOSTA

#FOSTA would criminalize hosting safety information online, #harmreduction techniques like asking for referrals via email, community spaces for #sexworkers and advertising platforms which allow people to engage in indoor work. #SurvivorsAgainstFOSTA

Survivors & Sex Workers need @RepJaredPolis @RepMcGovern to say NO to #FOSTA support our safer, harm reduction community practices like bad date lists, referrals and resource sharing! #SurvivorsAgainstFOSTA

SWers, allies, co-strugglers! We need YOU to call or text your reps! Tell them to say NO to #FOSTA because it hurts survivors and prevents us from sharing information freely online! Who is your rep? Find out here: #SurvivorsAgainstFOSTA

When you call: “Hi, my name is ___and I live in ___(city in district). I’m calling to urge Congressperson ______to vote NO on #FOSTA, House Bill 1865 because it infringes on online free speech and community harm reduction practices.” #SurvivorsAgainstFOSTA

Seeing the new amendments to #FOSTA (HB 1865) JUST in this morning at 10AM and they are SCARY! Please call your reps and tell them to VOTE NO! #SurvivorsAgainstFOSTA

Hey! @DavidCicilline! Where are you on #FOSTA (HB 1865)? We need you to SAY NO! This bill opens up advertising platforms for civil liability for facilitating sex trafficking – without giving any clear guidelines for what that actually entails!  #SurvivorsAgainstFOSTA

Rep Buck (CO)’s terrible amendment to #FOSTA: “Allows civil action to be taken against any sanctuary jurisdiction that is harboring an individual who is in this country illegally and has been found guilty of a violation under this act.” #SurvivorsAgainstFOSTA

Rep Mimi Walters (CA)’s terrible amendment: “Allows for enforcement of criminal and civil sex trafficking laws against websites that knowingly facilitate online sex trafficking.” This will NOT keep survivors safe. We need to be able to share information! #SurvivorsAgainstFOSTA

We do NOT need more criminalization! We do NOT need more online policing or surveillance! We need community methods that keep us safe! Stop attacking sex workers! #SurvivorsAgainstFOSTA

Targeting online advertising and social platforms, targeting advocacy groups sharing resources–this is NOT how we keep sex workers or trafficking survivors safe! Communities know best! Listen to those affected! #SurvivorsAgainstFOSTA

If you care about vulnerable communities like undocumented workers, sex workers, or survivors looking for safe work after an assault, take action AGAINST #FOSTA. We need to shut down HB 1865! We need community power and safety! Not more surveillance! #SurvivorsAgainstFOSTA

Support survivors? sex workers? Online free speech? Harm reduction models of community best practices? SAY NO to #FOSTA. It will NOT protect trafficking survivors. It WILL further criminalize them and sex working people! #SurvivorsAgainstFOSTA

Safety is NOT surveillance. Safety is NOT more policing. Safety is NOT ignoring survivors! #SurvivorsAgainstFOSTA
