Dear Friends,

 

Thank you for standing in solidarity with your brothers and sisters here in the United States and around the world. Today is a very important day, because today we remember all the women and men who have lost their lives because they chose to do sex work as their profession. It is incomprehensible to me why somebody would want to harm another human being because they are a prostitute. I will never understand why prostitutes do not deserve equal protection under the law. It is time to end the criminalization of prostitution and begin the healing process to stop discrimation and violence against sex workers. As long as we remain criminals, we will not be safe. As long as we are criminals, society will continue to abuse and dismiss us. We are human beings and we deserve to be safe. Decriminalize prostitution now and protect us, your brothers, sisters, mother’s, fathers, daughters and sons lives depend on it. 


We have compiled a list of names of women and girls, men and boys that have died while working in the line of prostitution.

Below are the names we could find. Please remember all of those that we could not find.

In Solidarity,

Robyn Few
