Candlelight Vigil - International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers

International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers
Candlelight Vigil

The 17th December is the International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers. In the UK and throughout the world, sex workers are continually subjected to physical and emotional abuse which often goes unreported because of the criminalisation of the work they do.

Let us call upon the spirit of Goddess and join together to share our poems, stories and songs in a candle light vigil to remember those who have died at the hands of those who were violent against them and to send our love and strength to those who are still suffering that they may find a way out of violent situations to places of safety.

The cost of the event is free, however, money donations will be accepted to be donate to the following organisations:-
