In addition to the obvious strategy of continuing to be a good client, here's some more things clients can do to help, with varying degrees of commitment involved. Comments, questions, and suggestions welcome!
* Come out of the closet. Be open with friends and family about hiring sex workers. It's harder for others to demonize clients if someone they know and trust--a brother, a father, a friend--is a client.
* Join decentralized social networks such as Switter and Hubzilla, and boycott censorship prone organizations like Google, Facebook, and Twitter.
* Know your stuff. Buy and promote the books of sex worker positive authors, such as Laura Agustin
, Chester Brown
and Lola Davina
* Speak out against stereotypes of providers and clients. Don't let the tropes of "prostitute as victim" or "exploitative john" go unchallenged.
* Out hypocrites such as Trump, Spitzer, etc, who persecute sex workers, even as they make use of their services.
* Speak out against the exaggerated statistics of rescue industry non-profits and sex worker hostile feminists.
* Talk up the "New Zealand model", and show how full decriminalization works much better than the "Swedish model".
* Talk up the support of decriminalization by well respected non-profits, such as Amnesty International
* Join the ACLU/EFF, and help them fight back against FOSTA/SESTA.
* Donate money to sex work non-profits such as SWOP-USA and Red Light Legal.
* Write letters to the editor, blog posts, etc in support of decriminalization.
* Donate money to politicians who are sympathetic to sex workers such as Rand Paul
* Hold fundraising parties to raise money for decriminalization, legal defense funds.
* Write model legislation, if it doesn't already exist, so that you have something tangible to ask politicians to support.
* Join the Free State Project, and work on decriminalization there. If there were a state where prostitution were wholly decriminalized, it could serve as a model for other states.
* Run for, and win political office.
* Write software to support sex workers, such as apps that help them to screen out cops and bad clients.
* Start businesses in support of sex workers, as AssemblyFour is doing with Switter.
* If you're an academic, host conferences and speakers in defense of decriminalization. Make sure that sex work hostile academics don't get tenure, don't get published, and don't funding. Speak out against the bad statistics, and bad methodology that are often practiced by sex work hostile academics.
