Monica Jones is a sex worker activist and a black transgender woman. In 2014, she was charged of “manifesting prostitution,” which is a misdemeanor according to Phoenix Municipal Code Section 23-52(A)(3). The law essentially criminalizes people who have the appearance to intend or solicit prostitution. The charge was later dismissed.
She holds a degree in Social Work and is engaged in working on issues such as harm reduction rather than diversion, and efforts to build health and rights for sex workers and communities routinely targeted by anti-prostitution law enforcement.
