Advocacy in Action

In Movement: Advocacy and Organizing Workshop

Do you work in the NYC sex trade and are curious about advocating for yourself and your peers? Learn about current campaigns around health, human rights, and the criminalization of people who trade sex in NYC. Find out about the history of our movement and get connected to NYC activists who get mad about the same stuff you do.

Join Red Umbrella Project and Persist Health Project staff and members for a brand new workshop on political advocacy and organizing in NYC. Our next workshop is May 5th from 6:00-8:30 pm at our downtown Brooklyn offices. Dinner will be served and metrocards are available. RedUp and Persist are located at 147 Prince Street; text or call 718.635.1791 to be let into the building. Email for directions and travel info.

Workshops are led by RedUP team members and activist colleagues and are intended for both experienced and new activists.
