2021 International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers Memorial List

This Friday, December 17, 2021, SWOP Behind Bars joins sx workers, allies and advocates from around the world in recognizing International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers. As we come together to remember those lost, we renew our commitment to the ongoing struggle for empowerment, visibility, and rights for all people who trade sex. For nearly two decades our community members have dedicated many months, meticulous care and endless anxiety each year to the collection and creation of the annual memorial list. Each year, the search for names, dates, locations, cause and circumstances of each life and death, reminds us that one day our own names will be on this list.

New Jersey man, 23, convicted of murdering three women and attempting to slay a fourth | Daily Mail Online

An Essex County (New Jersey) jury deliberated for just two hours on Thursday before convicting Khalil Wheeler-Weaver, 23, who now faces up to a life in prison plus 80 years.

Prosecutors said Wheeler-Weaver, of Orange, killed 20-year-old Sarah Butler, 33-year-old Joanne Brown and 19-year-old Robin West in 2016. They also accuse him of trying to kill another woman, identified in court documents only as T.T. who survived and testified against him at his trial. -Daily Mail Online
