Sex Workers’ Activism: An Alternative Perspective on Sex Trafficking

Debates about sex trafficking often focus on its perceived links to the commercial sex industry. But all too often, the perspectives and experiences of sex workers activists and advocates are overlooked in these discussions.

The Working Group for Research on (Sex) Trafficking will broaden the debate by hosting a panel featuring Melissa Hope Ditmore of the Sex Workers Project and members of the Sex Workers Outreach Project (SWOP East).

This panel will generate a nuanced discussion of sex trafficking policies and practices that foregrounds sex worker activists’ valuable and often ignored perspectives while contributing to the larger debates around domestic and global trafficking. Free and open to the public.

Sponsored by the Working Group for Research on (Sex) Trafficking, the Triangle Labor and Civil Rights Working Group, and the Carolina Women’s Center.

Thursday, April 8
6:00 – 7:30 pm
