Activist

I’m a founding board member of the Community United for Safety and Protection (CUSP), where I help advocate for individuals in the sex trade to be able to report crimes without being arrested and organize events like the International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers.

In 2015 I spent January through April in Juneau where I became a representational lobbyist.  I educated legislators about issues in Alaska’s sex trade and urged them to propose legislation making it illegal for police to have sex with people who are the victims, witnesses, or suspects in active investigations, to get rid of property forfeiture in prostitution convictions in order to lower the barrier to sex workers reporting crimes, and for anti-discrimination in accessing public services.
