EVENT: Towards Bodily Autonomy Book Launch

Towards Bodily Autonomy Book Launch
Sunday, March 19 @ 5:30 PM

From erotic labor, to the rights of people who use psychoactive substances, to reproductive health, and carcerality-- we are living through a political moment when debates about bodily autonomy are at a fever pitch. Towards Bodily Autonomy: A Healing Justice Anthology Decolonizing Sex Work and Drug Use is a bold and timely collection that confronts these charged issues at the intersection of social justice and public health. It reveals the histories behind the United States’ ideological wars and illustrates their costs to all of us. It is a primer on healing-centered harm reduction which presents a visionary framework and set of practical strategies to advance unity and care while working to transform conditions for communities that bear the brunt of interpersonal and systemic violence, overdose deaths, and health inequities.

Sex worker rights and harm reduction consultant Justice Rivera (she/they) is the editor of Towards Bodily Autonomy. Justice’s professional and artistic work is grounded in principles of harm reduction, anti-oppression, and healing justice. Her expressions seek to deconstruct carceral and punishment driven paradigms to race, gender, and bodily autonomy. She'll join Tool Shed's own Shaan Lashun -- local queer organizer and sex worker rights activist -- for a talk on the anthology, process, and her journey as a writer. 

About the Moderator: Shaan Lashun (he/they) is a contributor to Principles of Healing-Centered Harm Reduction and Overview of Harm Reduction in the Sex Trade. In addition to his role at Tool Shed as a kink/sexuality educator, Shaan is co-founder of Molly House Project, a space for men, transmasc, and masculine of center sex workers. His experience in sex worker rights organizing and trans wellness has included work with organizations and conferences nationwide, such as the Philadelphia Trans Health Conference, NYC Department of Health, the Harm Reduction Conference, and Grindr.

This book launch will be held in person at The Tool Shed.
