See you on December 17th!
Join us as we honor the International Day to End Violence against Sex Workers (aka Red Umbrella Day) for the fifth year in Albuquerque.
We’ll meet at the PEP Office at 6pm to collect signs and red umbrellas. From there, we’ll Slut Walk to the Albuquerque Social Club, where we will hold our candle lighting and reading of the names ceremony. Following the ceremony, we will open the floor to all attendees to speak.
We have signs and two red umbrellas to share. Please do feel welcome to bring your own signs relating to the ideology of sex work legalization and/or decriminalization; the West Mesa murders; and/or physical, psychological, state-sponsored, and/or institutional violence against sex workers.
Please consider bringing a red umbrella and wearing red! Want to learn more about Red Umbrella Day december17.org
I also picked prostitutes as victims because they were easy to pick up without being noticed. I knew they would not be reported missing right away and might never be reported missing. I picked prostitutes because I thought I could kill as many of them as I wanted without getting caught.
