Today CNWL is marking the International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers.
This day was created to call attention to hate crimes committed against sex workers and to remember those who have been murdered. To read more about the day go to: http://www.december17.org/.
Today, sex workers, sex worker rights organisations, sex work support projects and their supporters/allies will come together to remember victims of violence, call attention to hate crimes committed against sex workers and reinforce the message that crimes against sex workers are unacceptable and a violation of sex worker’s rights.
CNWL’s Central London Action on Sexual Health Team, who run a sexual health service for sex workers to drop into, have been raising awareness locally, see their picture below:
The Team are supporting National Ugly Mugs (NUM) which is a national organisation providing access to justice and protection for sex workers who are targeted by dangerous individuals.
