Emi Koyama will be speaking in Seattle on “War on Trafficking”? Resisting Criminalization as Solution to the ‘Modern Day Slavery.” The event will take place Thursday, January 10, 2013 @ 6PM @ HUB332, University of Washington.
Emi is the author of the The Transfeminist Manifesto. More of Emi’s writing is available online at http://eminism.org/

In light of the Women’s Center upcoming conference on human trafficking, the Q Center has partnered with the ASUW Women’s Action Committee, Queer Student Commission, Student Disability Commission, QPOCA, and Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences at UWB to bring Emi Koyama to the UW.

Emi Koyama is a multi-issue social justice activist and writer synthesizing feminist, Asian, survivor, dyke, queer, sex worker, intersex, genderqueer and crip politics. Emi will be bringing a much needed additional perspective to this discussion, discussing how law enforcement centered anti-trafficking efforts are not in line with anti-racist, anti-oppression, queer liberatory politics.
