In this follow-up to episode 26, Chris returns to Alaska to attend a memorial and vigil observing the 15th Annual International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers. The event took place at the Alaska Center for Alternative Lifestyles (ACAL), Alaska's only sex club. Terra Burns returns to update us on her continued fight for the human rights of sex workers in her home state. Amber Batts, currently on parole for sex trafficking (despite never trafficking anyone), tells her story. This episode also features stories about the intersection of drugs and sex work. Finally, Sarha Shaubach, ACAL's owner, recounts her reign as the 2013 International Ms. Leather. You can support Tara and CUSP's efforts to make it illegal for Alaskan police officers to sexually penetrate people under their investigation here, and you can read more about convicted rapist and former Anchorage police officer Anthony Rollins here and here.
