Fundraise Like Hell: A Benefit for Project SAFE with Kim Kelly

October 30 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Black text on a colorful gradient background. The headline uses a font with a tiny illustration of Piglet carrying each letter: FUNDRAISE LIKE HELL. The text continues: "$10-$30 sliding scale at the door: all proceeds benefit Project SAFE / A reading from Kim Kelly's "Fight Like Hell" and panel by Project Safe: What Can Sex Workers' Labor Organizing Teach the Contemporary Labor Movement? / OCT 30 1PM @ Iffy Books / 319 N. 11th St. #3E, PHL" At the bottom right there's an illustration of a hand holding two syringes.

What can sex workers’ labor organizing teach the contemporary labor movement? Join Kim Kelly (author of Fight Like Hell: The Untold History of American Labor) for a reading and a panel of Project SAFE participants for a discussion about the intersections of sex workers’ labor struggles and the broader labor movement in the United States. Sex workers have organized for workplace protections in strip clubs, against dangerous online regulations, to share information about bad dates, to help each other with rent and bills, and more.

Project SAFE is a grassroots, direct-service, and peer-based harm reduction organization. We organize with and provide women- and queer-centered services with a focus on community members living and working in the street economies in Kensington.
