Amnesty International has recently called for the decriminalization of the sex trade across the world.

Audrey Morrissey worked in the illegal sex trade for 13 years. Now, she has left the life and works with a group called My Life, My Choice, where she mentors at-risk young people.

She joined Here & Now‘s Meghna Chakrabarti to discuss her work with My Life, My Choice.
