Building Better Solutions – Reducing Harm in the Sex Trade

Gay City Calamus Auditorium – 517 E Pike St, Seattle

It is imperative that sex workers be given the same human rights as workers in other fields. Simultaneously, human trafficking needs to be stopped – for sexual exploitation or otherwise. HOW DO WE DO BOTH? SWOP-Seattle is hosting a panel discussion that includes active and retired sex workers, social service providers and activists to explore the complexities that face the sex industry. Let’s use this opportunity to share ideas for helping those who are exploited while protecting the rights of those who choose their occupation. Click here for full event description.
