Because almost all penalties for prostitution are established by state governments, DSW is encouraging allies to persuade their personal state legislators (as opposed to local or federal).

In most states — such as CA, HI, NY, and RI — each voter is represented by two state legislators in their state capitol.

In DC, each voter is represented by six city councilmembers; and in NE, each voter has only one state legislator.
