A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Buyer Beware: A Partnership to End Commercial Sexual Exploitation

When: Wednesday, October 15th at 10am
Where: Bertha Knight Landes Room, Seattle City Hall, 600 4th Ave
RSVP HERE

This event will officially launch an unprecedented regional effort to hold sex buyers accountable for the harms of prostitution. Buyer Beware is an historic partnership between law enforcement and community leaders across King County, led by the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office and the Organization for Prostitution Survivors.

You are invited to attend as a partner in the effort to reduce the violence and harm of prostitution and trafficking. Holding buyers accountable represents a new strategy for cities in King County to turn back the tide of dangerous exploitation on our streets.

King County Prosecuting Attorney Dan Satterberg will give a short statement, along with Peter Qualliotine, co-founder and director of men’s accountability programs for the Organization for Prostitution Survivors, and other distinguished guests. City and county officials will also have the opportunity to sign the Proclamation to Combat Demand during the launch. Light refreshments will be provided.

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
