Please join us for the Red Umbrella Rally next Wednesday, December 17! On this day, we are calling for an end to laws and unjust policing that prevent sex workers from reporting violence. These laws intersect with sexism, racism, ableism, and classism to perpetuate social stigma and create a cultural environment in which the violence perpetrated upon sex workers is seen as different from the violence perpetuated against others.
The rally will begin at the Legislature at 5:30, and we will be departing the leg by about 6:00 and marching up Government St. to City Hall, where there will be food served and more speakers and entertainment inside.

In addition, we are seeking experienced volunteers to act as road marshals during the rally. We also need a couple of chant leaders who are comfortable leading the crowd and have strong voices. We are expecting up to about 80 participants.
