Tucson SWOP in Local News

From the local Tucson Weekly:

It’s election season, and for sex workers across the nation, that can mean street sweeps with big arrests while tough-on-crime politicians pander for votes. Juliana Salamandra, media contact for the Sex Workers Outreach Project of Tucson, points to a Maricopa County bust of 50 Phoenix-area sex workers and their management that took place in early August as an example. In Tucson, sex workers are organized through the SWOP, which holds regular monthly meetings for sex workers and their supporters. The group is looking for volunteers to help plan an event for the International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers on Dec. 17. Also on the horizon for 2009 is the return of the Tucson Sex Worker Arts Festival. For more information, go to swop-tucson.org.
