To the two losers who thought it was appropriate to heckle a vigil on December 17, the International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers: You repeatedly asked how much was spent on umbrellas and said that the money could be used for a better purpose. Our umbrellas were a donation to the organization, though many people bring their own. Over the course of seven years, Sex Worker Outreach Project Seattle has spent a total of $51.87 on replacing broken umbrellas. That $51.87 has helped to raise visibility of the fact that sex workers are regularly targeted and subject to violence, the fact that every year numerous sex workers are murdered. It's outrageous, isn't it? $51.87 and a great deal of love remembering and honoring those our community has lost. Your energy would have been better spent joining us.
