Please consider signing the following petition asking Theresa May to roll out the Merseyside Hate Crime model across the UK.
This will allow the police a change in the way they work with vulnerable woman like sex workers and help keep them safe.
The petition was started by the mother of Bonnie Barratt, a 24 year old mother of one and sex worker, who was murdered by one of her regulars, who had a history of violence towards girls in the sex industry.
It is baffling that this model, in practice in Merseyside since '06 and proven to work (in 2010 alone it secured a conviction rate of 67% for rape, against the national average of just 6.5%) hasn't gone nationwide yet.
It's a no brainer. Please sign.
