And a live call in show after a Presentation by Jill Brenneman at William & Mary, this program hosted by Amanda Brooks, features many live calls from the presentation audience from the Brenneman presentation who stayed and joined XBN’s live broadcast which was being simulcast over the auditorium. This presentation was in response to the significant protest and backlash against the organizers and supporters of the Sex Worker’s Art Show Appearance at William & Mary and protests against the Sex Workers Art Show themselves. As the show demonstrates there is a lot of support for the Sex Workers Art Show at William and Mary.

Many outstanding guests are being scheduled, please watch for updates! If you would like to be a guest on this revolutionary project bringing sex workers voices to the media please contact www.swopeast.org

If you are a sex worker or sex worker rights musician and would like to make your music available to XBN, please contact us as we are in need of both theme music and would love to feature and credit sex worker and sex worker rights musicians.

From Gawker:

We never thought we’d see the day when the Governor of New York’s illegal sex trysts would give us only a renewed sense of ennui, but: Okay, we get it. The guy liked hookers. If the Post keeps this up, lots of other valuable yellow journalism will fail to make the front page.

Lawyering and Organizing for Sex Workers’ Rights

CUNY Outlaws presents

“Lawyering and Organizing

for Sex Workers’ Rights”

Tuesday April 1, 2008 at 6pm

CUNY Law School Auditorium,
6521 Main St. in Flushing Queens

Join us for Dinner and the Film, “A Safer Sex Trade”, to be followed by a discussion that addresses how criminalization and stigmatization of sex work affects both our clients as well as our work as attorneys.
Speakers include:
Sienna Baskin is a CUNY law alum and Equal Justice Works Fellow with the Urban Justice Center’s Sex Worker project. Sienna’s work with SWP combines organizing, legal services and impact litigation for and by victims of trafficking into prostitution. Her work will include family law and criminal law remedies for women trafficked by their boyfriends and husbands, as well as immigration representation through the T and U visas. Sienna will also work with former victims to develop a collective voice to contribute to policy efforts around trafficking. Finally, by litigating for victims of trafficking who remain excluded from the U.S. for their acts of prostitution, Sienna will ask the courts to question the hard line between “bad” sex workers and “good” trafficking victims.
Eliyanna Kaiser is the Executive Editor at $pread Magazine (www.spreadmagazine.org), a quarterly publication produced by and for sex workers and those that care about their rights. She is also the co-founder and a Board Member of Sex Work Awareness, a new non-profit dedicated to public education and advocacy for sex workers.  Eliyanna has worked in public policy for the New York State Assembly for over 5 years. She lives in New York City with her wife.

Ruthie Doyle is a Brooklyn-based artist, activist, and trained doula who has advocated for labor and human rights, as well as for better public health policies domestically and abroad, especially as related to gender and sexual rights. She has worked advocating for sex worker rights in New York and internationally.
