December 17th: Remembering Violence Against Sex Workers

December 17th, International Day To End Violence Against Sex Workers, is a day to remember the varied and myriad ways in which violence is enacted against sex workers, to commemorate and mourn those we lose each year.

I drove six hours and two hundred miles from where I live to attend the December 17th vigil in Brighton hosted by Brighton Feminist Collective.

I missed it. We arrived just as it ended and people left for home.

This is the speech I had planned to share at the vigil, which BFC kindly invited me to share after the fact.
