Announcing our next Social Justice Forum:

Thursday, January 26, 2017
Alumni Lounge, Usdan Student Center, Brandeis University

A speaker from Sex Workers Outreach Project (SWOP), Boston
Gowri Vijayakumar, Assistant Professor, Sociology

Sex worker activism has become increasingly visible around the world. We will discuss the history, goals and strategies of different groups within the sex workers’ rights movement, drawing on experiences in the US, India, and Kenya. We will also talk about conflicts and alliances between the sex workers’ movement and the feminist movement.

Join us for a vibrant discussion…and some dessert! Bring your lunch.
