<--break->On the 12th annual International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers, we seek to come together to honour those who we have lost this year, and renew our commitment in the on-going struggle for empowerment, visibility, and human rights for all sex workers. 

This event centers on healing and self-care in recognition that so many in our community who are dis/abled and chronically ill are excluded from ableist actions, spaces and events. 

Too often, violence against sex workers is also violence against trans women, women of color, drug users, and immigrants. Trans Women of Color are disproportionately impacted by state sanctioned violence. In the past 6 months, 12 TWOC were brutally murdered in this country. 

It is imperative that we create braver spaces centering the narratives of our most vulnerable. We cannot end the marginalization and victimization of all sex workers without also fighting white supremacy, transphobia, racism, albeism, stigma and criminalization of drug use, and xenophobia.
