Loving hut for dinner tonight. Tomorrow: salt and straw and Bollywood theater and pok pok. So excited.
Tuesday, August 5 at 7:30 p.m.
Herberger Theater Center, Stage West
222 E. Monroe St., Phoenix, AZ 85004
Doors open at 7 p.m. for pre-registered seating and 7:15 p.m. for general seating.
Alongside Arizona’s already brutal racial profiling laws, severe anti-prostitution statutes enable police to profile and harass people of color, people in poverty, and LGBTQ people. Trans women of color disproportionately face the discriminatory and detrimental effects of these laws.
Join us for a discussion with Emmy-nominated actress Laverne Cox and Phoenix activist Monica Jones about the fight for fairness and justice for trans people.
Jones, a student at ASU and advocate for sex worker rights, is currently fighting a conviction for “manifesting prostitution” – a crime in Phoenix that some call “walking while trans.” Cox is a star of the critically acclaimed Netflix series “Orange Is the New Black” and an outspoken advocate for the LGBTQ community.
This event is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged.
Sponsored by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Arizona and the Phoenix Sex Workers Outreach Project (SWOP) with generous support from the Herberger Theater Center.
