Meeting: Legal minds needed for project to make bust cards for migrant sex workers

You are invited to attend a discussion on the experience of and law  around raids in the sex industry, which will contribute to the development of ‘Know your Rights’ cards for migrant sex workers. These cards will be produced by the x:talk project, a workers’ co-operative led by sex workers, and distributed during our outreach sessions. As with our regular English classes, the rights cards project is based on the idea of mutual aid amongst migrant workers in the industry as a means of self-defence and autonomy.

The multilingual cards will be concise and practical, containing the most important points regarding the rights of migrant sex workers
during raids, arrest and detention, as well as solicitors’ numbers people can call on arrest.

The English Collective of Prostitutes has already produced an excellent A-Z for sex workers; however, x:talk’s cards will be designed for migrant workers in the industry and the specific issues they face.

We would appreciate input from practitioners in the fields of criminal  and/or immigration law, as these raids involve considerable cross-over in practice areas.

If you feel you can contribute to the discussion, we invite you to attend at 6pm on Tuesday 20th November at the Centre for Possible
Studies, 21 Gloucester Place, W1U 8HR. Please RSVP to confirm your attendance to xtalk.legal [a] gmail.com

We look forward to seeing you there.

The x:talk project.

Want to get involved?

The project is open for new people to get involved in – we have regular meetings, email discussion groups and are always looking for new ways to publicise the project.
