18 June meeting: The English Collective of Prostitutes on Sex workers organising for safety and justice

A recent survey found 5% of students are working in the sex industry to pay off debt and cover living expenses. At the same time, unemployment, benefit cuts and sanctions, lowering wages and homelessness, are driving increasing numbers of women, mostly mothers supporting families, into the sex industry where we are being arrested, criminalised and even imprisoned. Sex workers who report violence can find themselves prosecuted while their attacker goes free; victims of trafficking, instead of the support they are entitled to, are treated as immigration offenders and face detention and removal. It’s about time consenting sex was decriminalised. Find out what sex workers are doing to insist on our rights to safety, protection and justice.

7.30 pm at The Lantern, Meadow Farm Drive, Shrewsbury SY1 4NG
