International Day to End Violence against Sex Workers

http://www.december17.org/

Free massages, pedis, ambience, music, conversation. short films, art, moment of Silence for people lost due to violence. Sex Workers & Sex Workers Allies are invited.

RSVP for directions

In the spirit of remembrance and healing, the Sex Workers Outreach Project invites sex workers,
allies and advocates from around the world to join us in recognizing December 17, the International Day
to End Violence against Sex Workers.
Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers was first recognized in 2003 as a memorial and vigil
for the victims of the Green River Killer in Seattle Washington. Since 2003, Day to End Violence
Against Sex Workers has empowered people from cities around the world to come together and organize
against discrimination and remember victims of violence.
As we approach this day, we seek to come together to remember those who we have lost this
year, and renew our commitment in the on-going struggle for empowerment, visibility, and rights for all
sex workers.
We also renew our commitment to solidarity. For the majority of victims, 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. We cannot end the marginalization and victimization of
all sex workers without also fighting transphobia, racism, stigma and criminalization of drug use, and
xenophobia.
During the week of December 17th, sex worker communities and social justice organizations
stage actions and vigils and work to raise awareness about violence that is commonly committed against
sex workers. The assault, battery, rape and murder of sex workers must end. Racism and economic
inequality and systems of colonialist, capitalist violence and oppression must end. The stigma and
discrimination and criminalization that makes violence against us acceptable must end. Please join with
sex workers around the world and stand against criminalization and violence committed against our
communities.
Fact Sheet
23% of GLBT murder victims on the 2012 Anti-Violence Project report were killed while
engaging in sex work.
The homicide rate for female sex workers is estimated to be 204 per 100,000, according to a
longitudinal study published in 2004. This constitutes a higher occupational mortality rate than
any other group of women ever studied.
A study of New York Street-Based Sex Workers reported that 80% of participants had reported
experiencing violence, including 27% at the hands of police.
In a report on violence against sex workers in India, 70% had reported abuse by police, and 80%
had been arrested without evidence.
