Meeting this Sunday (7/7), Hotel rooms in Vegas, Success in New York!

Hello everyone!  Hope you had a safe and fun 4th.  Here’s what’s going on:

Meeting this Sunday

We’re meeting this Sunday (7/7) at 5pm, location TBA (suggestions welcome, otherwise I’m going to pick a place that has either coffee or beer–whichever I’m in the mood for on Sunday–and let you know then.  So please, if you have a location preference, speak up!).  (EDIT: We’re meeting at a member’s home. Email swop.nola@gmail.com for the location). If you’d like to get more actively involved, this is a good time to show up, as we’ve got some projects going on and could really use the help.  And if you just want to meet up and shoot the shit with like-minded folks, that’s cool too; we’d love to have you.  This will be the first of our regularly-scheduled twice-monthly meetings. The next meeting is on Thursday the 18th at 6pm.

Desiree Alliance Conference

The Desiree Alliance Conference in Vegas is only a little over a week away!  A couple of us are rooming together.  If you’d like to room with us, we’ve got room, so let us know!

A Victory: No Condoms As Evidence Bill Passes the NYS Assembly!

On Friday, June 21st, the New York State No Condoms As Evidence Bill (A2736) passed the Assembly!  Right now, New York is poised to be the first state in the country to ban the use of condoms of evidence of prostitution related offenses.  Hopefully, this will set a precedent for the rest of the country…

HRW Survey

Human Rights Watch Survey about access to health services for sex workers (previously discussed here and here):  We’ll have paper copies at the meeting on Sunday if you’d like to take one, fill it out, and send it in yourself.  You can also still fill it out online (email us for the link).  It only takes a few minutes to fill out, it’s completely anonymous, and your answers will be used for statistical purposes only.
