Guest speaker: Niki Adams, English Collective of Prostitutes. Also, Alexandra Berliner , All of Us or None;

Speakers will address:

· How UK sex workers won against mass raids and closures instigated by police and property developers attempting to take over the historic red-light district of Soho, central London, England. This is a crucial victory for the SF Bay Area to know about, as many of us face speculators, evictions and gentrification.

· The ground breaking victory winning compensation for rape for sex workers who were previously excluded from the California Victim Compensation Program.

· How the recent FBI closure of Redbook, an online advertising venue, has affected sex workers safety.

· A successful campaign against increased criminalization of sex work: Bill SB 1388.

· Stop the War on the Poor Campaign: how it strengthens our struggle for survival and against criminalization.

· Next steps and how you can be involved.
