Litigation for Emancipation is a GoFundMe project to raise enough funds to begin a federal court case proposed by Erotic Service Providers Legal, Education and Research Project (ESPLER). ESPLER’s legal battle aims to advance our sexual privacy rights by attacking the prostitution law of the state of California on the grounds that morality is not a basis for legislation. The ruling could then be used in other parts of the US.
In this video, Attorney H. Louis Sirkin, a founding member of Sirkin & Kinsley and one of the nation’s preeminent First Amendment and constitutional rights attorneys (who successfully argued before the United States Supreme Court in Ashcroft v. Free Speech Coalition challenging the constitutionality of the Child Pornography Prevention Act), discusses the legal challenge. A reminder before you watch: Because ESPLER is a Non-Profit 501-(C) 3, your donation is tax deductible. And by using GoFundMe, you can also be anonymous.
