An Analysis of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Anti-Prostitution Loyalty Oath Decision: What the most recent APLO ruling means for global sex worker rights activists

On July 15th, 2020, the African Sex Workers Alliance (ASWA) and CHANGE co-hosted an interactive webinar examining the Anti-Prostitution Loyalty Oath (APLO), a funding restriction that requires all recipients of PEPFAR funding to “have a policy explicitly opposing prostitution.” Speakers Grace Kamau and Beirne Roose-Snyder discuss the Supreme Court's most recent ruling on the APLO, delivered on June 29th, 2020, which upholds the APLO as it applies to foreign affiliates of U.S.-based organizations. Their conversation assesses possible impacts of the ruling on sex workers and sex worker rights advocacy organizations. The webinar concludes with next steps to oppose the APLO and uplift the health and rights of sex workers.
