Good food, solid company, and a moment to stand up for those who can not…. May our sisters and brothers #RestInPower

Each year on December 17th we gather worldwide to mourn those we lost this year and in their honor, renew our commitment to the ongoing struggle for empowerment, visibility, and rights of all sex workers.

We also renew our commitment to solidarity. The majority of violence against sex workers is not just violence against sex works—it’s also violence against transwomen, against women of color, against drug users, against immigrants. We cannot end the marginalization and victimization of all sex workers without also fighting trans-phobia, racism, stigma and criminalization of drug use, and xenophobia.

Join us this December 17th. You are invited to bring a red umbella, a story about a loved one in the sex trade that is no longer with us, something for the pot luck, or simply come as you are and enjoy a hot meal and good company as we stand together in honor of those no longer with us.
