Genesis Charity Raffle

Genesis are having a fundraising raffle as part of events to mark 17th December, International Day to End Violence Agains Sex Workers! The money raised from the raffle will go towards; food parcels, homelessness packs, winter woollies for our street based service users and personal safety resources for sex workers in all sectors.

 The Green River Killer

This day was created to call attention to violence against sex workers and to remember those who have been murdered. It was originally created by The sex workers outreach project in the US as a memorial and vigil for the victims of the “Green River Killer” in USA, convicted of the murders of 49 women and believed to have killed at least 71. 17th December has grown to be a global event, where sex workers, sex work support projects and their supporters come together in towns and cities around the world to remember victims of violence and reinforce the message that crimes against sex workers will not be tolerated and perpetrators will be brought to justice.

17th December 2013

To mark the day we will be hosting an event with parther agencies where there will be a memorial for sex workers in the UK who have been murdered in the past year, we wil remember sex workers from Leeds who have been lost over the years. We will also be running personal safety workshops with our service users.
