Join Families of Sisters in Spirit (FSIS) & Prostitutes of Ottawa-Gatineau Work, Educate and Resist (POWER) on Monday December 17th for a candle-light vigil to mark the International Day to End Violence against Sex Workers ♥

Together we will:

* Honour and remember our stolen sisters, brothers, friends and lovers in the sex industry

* Draw much-needed attention to the unsolved disappearances and murders of sex workers in the Ottawa-Gatineau area and across Turtle Island (North America)

* Celebrate our ongoing resistance to policies and laws meant to displace, erase, and eliminate us from our own communities
