December 17th is International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers. Started in Seattle in 2003 by Dr. Annie Sprinkle and SWOP-USA as a tribute to the victims of the Green River Killer, December 17th has become a global movement. Between now and the 17th, I’ll post mini episodes in rememberance of a sex worker lost to violence. On the 17th, SWOP-Behind Bars will be hosting a 24-hour online vigil which is open to the public.
