As a collective, we are gearing up to start a sex-work decriminalization campaign. To educate ourselves, we started reading Playing the Whore by Melissa Gira Grant in February 2020!

March 10th — Chapters 3 and 4

April 14th — Chapters 5 and 6

May 12th — Chapters 7 and 8

No Black Power Book Club in June because we’ll be doing Community Pride things!

July 14th — Chapters 9 and 10
