December 17th All December: All In A Days (Sex) Work Podcast

December 17th is International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers. Started in Seattle in 2003 by Dr. Annie Sprinkle and SWOP-USA as a tribute to the victims of the Green River Killer, December 17th has become a global movement. Here at All In A Day’s (Sex) Work, we will observe December 17th by telling 17 stories. Every day between now and the 17th, I’ll post a mini episode in rememberance of a sex worker lost to violence. On the 17th, SWOP-Behind Bars will be hosting a 24-hour online vigil which is open to the public. https://www.facebook.com/InternationalDaytoendViolenceAgainstSexWorkers/

The organization says 26 percent of those who identify as transgender have lost a job. In 2016, advocates tracked at least 23 violent deaths of transgender people in the United States, then the most ever recorded, according to the civil rights organization Human Rights Campaign. This year, that number has risen to 27, the HRC said. Williams said that many of her friends did not make it out of their 20s because of violence, suicide or drug overdoses.
