Support Self-Defense for Sex Workers!

$1,695 of $6,000 goal

Raised by 30 people in 3 months

St. James Infirmary is thrilled to announce that we plan to start offering weekly self-defense classes for current and former sex workers this spring.  Particularly given the shifts in work conditions over the past year, it is more imperative than ever that sex workers be given the tools to keep ourselves safe.

We are partnering with the amazing Shawn Tamaribuchi of Oakland's Four Elements Fitness to provide weekly trauma-informed self-defense classes with the specific needs of sex workers in mind.  But we can't do it without your support!

Please donate and share this campaign to help us cover the costs of bringing FREE, ongoing self-defense training to Bay Area sex workers. $6,000 will fund three 6-week courses. Any additional funding raised over our goal will be used to expand the program to other locations and times to make it as accessible to as many people as possible.

More information about St. James Infirmary: St. James Infirmary is a peer-based occupational health and safety clinic for sex workers and their families. We exist to provide free, compassionate, and non-judgmental healthcare and social services for Sex Workers (current or former) of all genders and sexual orientations while preventing occupational illnesses and injuries through a comprehensive continuum of services.
