Emily is throwing a great event after the support group on Saturday to plan efforts to channel art in protesting SESTA/FOSTA/CLOUD! Read her description below.
As an Art Therapist & Current Sex Worker, I am in the process of organizing an Art Protest titled “A Funeral for the Death of Safer Sex Work” set for May 1st, 2018, (international laborer/worker rights day) as a way to collectively greave the end of an era for sex workers, as a way to object to the passing of SESTA, FOSTA & CLOUD as well as to show physical visible solidarity with sex workers experiencing negative effects from the implementation of these laws!
The first planning meeting and funeral hat making workshop will be held after the Sex Worker Support Group this coming Saturday the 21st around 3:00pm at my place (close to the corner of Clark & Lunt) in Rogers Park. I will have music, food & art supplies (but would like to empower people to bring their own supplies as well)!
I will lead a hat making workshop and allow for any further processing that folks want to do after the support group!
