Sex worker movements have been at the forefront of resistance against criminalization, police surveillance, and state violence for decades. As the Black liberation struggle forces a global reckoning with the racist and capitalist nature of policing, it has become increasingly urgent to centre the knowledge and experience of sex workers who face multiple intersecting oppressions. Community organizers are increasingly recognizing that the fight for sex worker rights is intimately tied to other emancipatory struggles from migrant justice and anti-gentrification, to anti-racism and LGBTQ rights.
