Candlelight vigils and images of red umbrellas are popping up all over the world today, The International Day To End Violence Against Sex Workers. There are three Canadian events marking the event that I know of and a full list of International activities can be found here. Nothing happening in Sask, unfortunately. So light a candle and donate to one of the sex workers’ rights organizations below (this list is from the Ottawa event):
