This year on December 17 SWOP-Chicago invites you to join them for an evening of remembrance and love.
The evening will feature a structured open mic/speak out portion, in which community members and allies can tell stories and share thoughts related to violence against sex workers. Our event will also feature refreshments, music by DJ Masisi, therapeutic group engagement, an interactive altar at which attendees can light a candle and leave a personal message, and a projection of the names of the sex workers who we have lost this year. We will also have someone on hand to de-brief with individuals who might feel overwhelmed or triggered.
They will also be collecting warm winter gear and travel-sized toiletries at this event for their weekly street outreach on the West side. You can also drop off toiletries at Early to Bed to receive a $1 off coupon for each item! Want another way to support SWOP-Chicago’s work? Donate to their Indiegogo fundraising campaign here!
