I know that there are many of us across the globe who work tirelessly and unpaid on our respective projects to bring peace to the prostitute nation.
Here’s what I did today:
I spent 30 minutes talking with another sex worker rights activist, actually we wrestled about the next right action,
Then I spent 45 minutes on the phone talking to a worker about her case,
Then I spent another hour and 10 minutes on the phone with another worker about her frustration and her next right action.
I called and emailed three orgs asking for their support.
I emailed 17 sex worker activists about an up coming action.
I texted with a sex worker rights activist in another state about supporting their efforts.
Texted with another sex worker rights activist in yet another state about gaining a contact to help with our direct action.
I friended that ally and we set up a date to speak on the phone.
I posted on link on fb about how the anti prostitutist are really quite violent towards our class.
I called a researcher-left a message.
Last night I spent about an hour and 20 minutes exchanging information and supporting an other sex worker rights activist in Europe,
Before that, I spent two hours in a meeting with like minded activist on other issues not directly related to my industry. I guess I would call that coalition building.
Before that meeting, I had a ten minute conversation with a political organizer about prop 35.
Before that, I had tea with a retired labor organizer about getting some help with our bylaws, that took about an hour.
Before that, I met with our customer plaintiff and recorded him-35 minutes. I was late because my bus was late.
Before that, I emailed and called several legislators to ask for their support for anti discrimination legislation.
And I cannot remember what I did before that…
I’m not bragging, Im just saying…
I’m saying I enjoy my work, but its all unpaid.
I’d like to be supported in my work and get at least one other person resourced in joining me.
