International Day To End Violence Against Sex Workers -- Memorial and call to action. This is to invite you to a sweet and important event:

The Sex Workers Outreach Project & Coyote are sponsoring an International Day To End Violence Against Sex Workers. A Memorial for murdered prostitutes and a Call To Action.

Many of us have been deeply saddened by the murders of dozens of prostitutes by serial killer Gary Ridgeway. He said he killed prostitutes because they were "easy targets, and no one would report them missing." He said he thought he could kill as many of them as he wanted without getting caught. Ridgeway was not the first, and unfortunately he won't be the last killer to prey on Sex Workers.

It's important to show that we care, and to insist on safer working conditions for the vulnerable Sex Workers out there today. Together we can help stop more of these horrible hate crimes.

On December 17, 2003 people will gather to do memorials and actions in various cities internationally. Everyone is welcome to participate. Please join us.

We are also looking for more people to host and produce more events. We want you! Do whatever kind of memorial you would like in your city, and or a political action. Or simply do something privately yourself at home, alone or with a few other people. Many people will light candles and observe a moment of silence at 6:00 PM.

You can go online, get more information about these events, and/or volunteer at SWOP-USA.org.

In San Francisco, we will gather at 5:30 Pm in Civic Center Plaza (behind the California State Building). Join Scarlot Harlot, Robin Few, Carol Queen, Margo St. James, Annie Sprinkle, and many others. Bring your words, songs, and performances, alter items, poems, etc. to share in our circle. The memorial will be followed by a reception in City Hall.
