Together AZ Recovery Magazine Publishes My Article, Leaving the Life

Together AZ published my article in its January edition. The article, called "Leaving the Life," details the process universal to many sex workers who try to exit the industry. Exit is not always a linear event and in fact, looks much like the models shown above.

I would be happy to speak to your organization about this important topic. Offering support in a calm, non-judgmental and unemotional manner can help sex workers in their attempts to exit the industry.

Because She Matters Gets a Mention on The Daily Beast

If you're not familiar with Melissa Petro, hop on over to this link to view her take on her outing and subsequent forced leave of her teaching job because of her past as a sex worker.

Melissa eloquently describes the difficulty of leaving the sex industry. It is a shame when our schools struggle to find teachers who are appropriate role models that Melissa was forced to resign. She is a wonderful writer and activist and I believe God will ultimately guide her to maximum usefulness.

She mentions Because She Matters in her recent post.
