Latest news and publications
Member news: Nordic Model passes vital stage in the Dail yesterday!

CAP Intl Irish member Ruhama are delighted that the Sexual Offences Bill 2015 passed the committee stage in the Dail yesterday. This bill will criminalise the purchase of sex and decriminalise individuals involved in prostitution including those on street.
Thanks to the Tanaiste Frances Fitzgerald and all Ruhama's partners of the Turn Off The Red Light campaign, the bill will now go to report stage and will hopefully pass very soon. Share your support and take action at Turn off the Red Light.
