(note: Washington State only)
At last Tuesday’s Community Emergency Gathering for Trans and Gender-Diverse People in the Sex Trade we launched the Community Survey on Policy Changes to Protect Rights & Safety.
Funded in part by Third Wave Fund’s Mobilize Power grant, the survey is intended to collect stories of people in the sex trade in Seattle/King County/Washington State and to amplify their voices in the policy conversations from which people most impacted by them are routinely excluded from consideration.
We are not outside academic researchers building careers for ourselves. About half of us are current and former sex workers or people with histories in the sex trade, and the rest are our friends and allies in various community groups.
If you are interested in being part of the survey or learning about more about it, please read our Survey invitation. Participants have an option to receive a $50 VISA or MasterCard gift card after completing the survey.
