End Violence Against Sex Workers

Violence against sex workers is not just violence against sex workers—it’s also violence against transwomen, against women of color, against drug users, against immigrants.

Some quick stats:

This International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers, we joined HIPS, the DC Center, and other organizations to memorize all those who have suffered violence for their involvement with sex work–particularly the 23 trans women who were killed just this past year.

The event included a vigil, a program of speakers and performers, and a reception and balloon release to show our support.
