On December 17, sex worker communities around the world are coming together celebrate the eleventh annual International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers. This year we are thrilled to announce multiple events and opportunities to come together and share in the amazing spirit of the sex worker community. We welcome sex work communities, allies, advocates, friends and family to celebrate the memories of those we have lost, and sharing in the strength and resilience of those involved with or impacted by the sex trade. We take this solemn day every year to come together as a singular voice, and re-commit ourselves in the struggle to fight for the rights and dignity to which all are entitled.

This year we will feature the creation of a living altar, to be created at the vigil. We encourage everyone to bring an item, picture, card, or story which represents a moment of resilience they wish to contribute to the altar or share with the community.

We are also continually compiling a list of names of those in our community we have lost in the last year to violence in all its forms. If you have the name of someone you would like included on this list, please send their name, location, and approximate date of their passing to dec17@swopusa.org for inclusion on this year’s list, where they will be remembered at vigils across the globe.

For more information on the event, please check out our Facebook Page.
