Sex work, SESTA, Censorship: Save Us From Saviors

Friday, October 12, 2018
3:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Event Type:
Save Us From Saviors
Location Details:
Redwood Lounge, Quarry Plaza, UCSC campus

We are a new organizing group on the UCSC campus that includes current and former sex workers, allies, undergraduates, graduates, and alumni.

We invite you to attend "Sex Work, SESTA, and Censorship: Save Us From Saviors". This event is intended to educate non-sex workers, give sex workers an opportunity to train students and faculty, and discuss damaging policies and social conditions affecting our community.

When: 3PM to 6 PM, Redwood Lounge
Where: Redwood Lounge, Quarry Plaza, UCSC Campus


We welcome Dr. Vanessa Carlisle to the UCSC campus as our Keynote Speaker to discuss the neoliberal utilization of anti-trafficking policies such as FOSTA/SESTA, and the harms imposed on sex working communities.

St James Infirmary (peer-based sex worker clinic) will also be joining us, conducting an educational "Sex Work 101" training presentation, and invite faculty, students, and community members to this training.

This event is intended to educate non-sex working students, faculty, and community members on sex work and SESTA. This event is also intended to project the marginalized voices of sex workers on campus and in the broader community, as well as be a starting point for peer-based sex worker resources on campus.

Please submit anonymous statements you would like to be read at the event to saveusfromsaviorsucsc [at]
These statements can include the intricacies of your experience as a sex worker, requests you have of non-sex workers, your experiences on campus, or your experiences after SESTA.
Open to students, non-students, and alumni.
If you would like to read your on statement at the event, please let us know.

We are looking for volunteers to help with flyering, social media and email boosting, event coordination and event security.
