This event is hosted by Veronica Vera and the Reproductive Rights Committee of Judson Memorial Church. We will provide masks and wigs to maintain privacy. All genders are invited. Criminalizing sex work affects all of our lives.
We will be providing candles and you are also invited to bring your own candle, perhaps decorated to honor a particular person.
