Our NYC crew (Aaron, Donna and Red) raised $300 for Alisha’s commissary and communications needs through our zine sales!
Many thanks to all the wonderful zine fest organizers– who also invited one of our organizers to hold a workshop and zine reading on how to not be a jerk to sex workers!
Red highlighted Alisha and GiGi Thomas’s cases, discussed shared language (sex work, survival sex, labor trafficking) and read selections from LeLe’s poetry and Aaron’s visitation reflections featured in our “yearbook” zines.
Much appreciation again to Survived and Punished and Barnard Center for Research on Women – BCRW for the amazing video resources they’ve created for criminalized survivors’ stories!
Thanks to everyone who stopped by our table and shared love, support, and rage!
