Sex Work & Social Work Disrupting Institutional Violence

Thanks Hunter College for such a great event! Joint presentation from Red, an organizer with Support Ho(s)e and Liz from The Sex Workers Project at the Urban Justice Center for “Common Time” at Hunter College’s School of Social Work. We got to share a sex worker centered toolkit Support Ho(s)e published last year for Health & Wellness professionals as well as a visual map of how #SESTA #FOSTA will further target/harass criminalized/vulnerable communities made by Kate D. of #ReframeHealthAndJustice and discuss the racist/white supremacist origins of the rescue industry and criminalization in this country. We also talked about how the criminal legal system punishes survivors like Alisha Walker, GiGi Thomas, Cyntoia Brown. We also shared the importance of disrupting institutional violence.
