FROM DESIREE ALLIANCE WEBSITE –
The most important goal of the Desiree Alliance is to be part of efforts to reinvigorate the sex workers’ rights movement in the US. Therefore, all of our actions in the last years focused on building leadership and constructive activism in the sex worker population. While the Desiree Alliance promotes rights and justice for people engaging in sexual commerce, we collaborate and stand with organizations working in overlapping struggles for the rights of sexual and gender minorities, sexual rights in general, reproductive rights and human rights.
Desiree Alliance is committed to nonviolence. This means that we adhere to the tenets of principled nonviolence in the achievement of our goals, and we disdain the use of violence by any person or group of people to achieve any goal- be it political, practical, or spiritual. We are comprised of members who work to end violence against sex workers, believing that violence against any human is violence against all humans.
Foundational to our alliance is the common desire amongst all members- both groups and individuals- to promote social justice and gender equity. Often marginalized, sex workers and their allies face many ideological obstacles to our aims, and these are often fuelled by misinformation. Misinformation has been a driving force behind many dehumanizing tactics used by oppressors throughout history, and in the case of sex workers unfortunately there is no difference. Misinformation and outright prejudice are often responsible for the actions of serial killers and other abusers of sex workers.
