“Know Your Rights”
Former male escort Brendan Michael Conner, a third-year law student and Haywood Burns Fellow at the City University of New York School of Law, will provide a “Know Your Rights” training that will include a discussion of New York criminal laws commonly applied to male sex workers (such as prostitution, promoting prostitution, criminal
nuisance, and disorderly conduct) and the Fourth Amendment rights governing police interactions with sex workers, both on the street and at indoor work-settings. The training will focus on practical advice and interactive role-plays to prepare participants to get through a police encounter safely and calmly, but will also provide tips for preventing police encounters from occurring in the first place.
