Jill Brenneman, executive director of the Sex Workers Outreach Project–East, will speak on campus about her experiences as a sex worker and as an advocate for sex workers’ rights.

As a former sex worker, Brenneman draws on her first-hand experiences to aid in her work as a national speaker, activist and outreach educator. She now supports the legalization of prostitution in the United States to ensure that sex workers gain access to health, legal and other aid available to other workers, but Brenneman’s past support of bills such as the Anti- Prostitution Oath in 2005 make her a controversial figure.

She will speak Sunday, March 30 at 5 p.m. in Washington 201.
