This study examined the effects of poverty, the policing of online California adult posting venue (SFredbook.com) and the effects it has on those engaged in survival sex and/or those who are the victims of sex trafficking in the Sacramento Region. Street workers from the Stockton Blvd strip in Sacramento, CA were interviewed in order to assess their current needs and what we as a community were doing right or wrong. We predicted an increase in street workers due to the seizing of SFRedbook.com and a high incidence of violence and predatory behavior as a result.
