Press release from: St. James Infirmary

St. James Infirmary is proud to welcome California attorney James Burch as our new Policy and Advocacy Officer thanks to our generous funding from the Levi Strauss Foundation.

San Francisco, CA, Jan 30, 2019 -- St. James Infirmary is proud to welcome California attorney James Burch as our new Policy and Advocacy Officer thanks to our generous funding from the Levi Strauss Foundation. Due to James’s extensive legal experience in the State of California and a steadfast commitment to St. James’s mission in search of justice, community engagement, and the protection of our most vulnerable neighbors by advancing civil liberties, we look forward to the tremendous opportunities ahead as we fight for the rights and livelihoods of sex workers.

Furthermore, St. James Infirmary’s expansion is especially crucial as we begin an exciting venture in partnership with the ACLU and State Senator Scott Wiener to work on crafting state legislation that will finally bring a long-awaited end to the criminalization of sex work and overpolicing of our communities in the state of California.

Kelli Dorsey, SJI board member, will be our Policy and Advocacy Program Advisor and work closely with James Burch alongside our city’s sex workers to analyze and develop policy that ensures sex workers’ rights and dignity are recognized and firmly protected both here in San Francisco and all throughout the State of California.
