December 17, the International Day to End Violence against Sex Workers

“In the spirit of remembrance and healing, SWOP joins sex workers, allies and advocates from around the world in recognizing December 17, the International Day to End Violence against Sex Workers. 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.”

The march will begin at 4:00p.m. at the intersection of Bourbon Street and Canal Street and parade through the Quarter to Frenchmen Street. NOLA’s traditional costuming is not involved in the march, but participants are encouraged to wear red. Planners note, “Though the reason for our event is sober and serious, you don’t have to be.”IDEVASW-2014-MAP
