Organizer/AuthorSave Us From Saviors
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.
