I recently read an opinion piece in The Tyee entitled, “Yes, You Can Oppose Trafficking and Support Sex Workers’ Rights” and I was reminded of my friend, Cybèle Lespérance. This is an abridged re-broadcast of The Red Umbrella, in recognition of International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers (December 17).

Cybèle is articulate, in multiple languages and the most powerful thing she uses her French for is sex workers advocacy. Cybèle is going to join me on the Cookie Jar to talk about sex workers rights.
