International Day to End Violence against Sex Workers: December 17

This annual event is coming up again, with activities in various parts of the U.S. along with Capetown, South Africa; London, England; Montreal, Quebec Canada; and Phnom Penh, Cambodia: http://www.facebook.com/#!/aphunter/posts/10150586436448852 . The purpose is to support the safey and well-being of sex workers, and promote anti-violence policies, attitudes, and practices as well as build community, remember sex workers whose lives have been lost due to hatred and violence, express our voices, and listen.
Here’s a link to the redesigned and updated Dec. 17 website: http://www.swopusa.org/dec17/ . Please keep checking it, as there will likely be more updates and information added.

  2. Received your reply, and appreciate your responses and activism. Thank you for the clarity with certain points. We are in agreement with most of the exchange we had, would you agree?

  3. Yes, we both agree that sex workers must have the right to working conditions that are as safe and sanitary as possible and at least livable wages. I hope you will be able to attend a Dec. 17 event or organize one. Either way, thank you for your kindness.

  4. As Dec. 17 approaches, I’ve been remembering violence in sex work I experienced, and blogged about this here: http://veganvixen1.wordpress.com/2011/12/07/blood-running-down-my-legs/ .
