End Violence Against Sex Workers

On July 19th, 2013, people are gathering across the globe to protest against violence against sex workers.

Following the murders of Dora Özer and Petite Jasmine on the 9th and 11 of July 2013, sex workers, their friends, families, and allies are coming together to demand an end to stigma, criminalisation, violence and murders. In the week since the two tragedies occurred, the feelings of anger, grief, sadness and injustice – for the loss of Dora and Jasmine, but also for the senseless and systemic murders and violence against sex workers worldwide – have brought together people in more than 25 cities from three continents who agreed to organise demos, vigils, and protests in front of Turkish and Swedish embassies or other symbolic places.

JOIN US on Friday the 19th at 3 pm local time and stand in solidarity with sex workers and their loved ones around the world!

Even if you can’t make it, you can help spread the word by trending ‪#‎stigmakills‬ on Twitter at 8am, 12pm and 10pm.

Justice for Dora! Justice for Jasmine!
Justice for all sex workers who are victims of violence!
