                  Update 4/2/2015: F.P.D has committed to not arresting sex workers for condoms and has had their officers undergo community sensitivity training. NCHRC applauds their efforts to do so! North Carolinians, 10 current and former sex workers and/or advocates, share their experience with the common goal of raising awareness about and reducing violence perpetrated against sex workers. Sex workers often do not report crimes committed against them because they do not want to incriminate themselves; criminalization of sex work protects the perpetrators. What types of violence do sex workers experience? What can sex workers do to avoid violence? What else can be done to make sex work safer? The North Carolina Bad Date Line, created by the North Carolina Harm Reduction Coalition (www.nchrc.org,) allows sex workers to anonymously report crime against them to help each other stay safer. First in the three-part Sex Worker Violence Prevention video series. The producer, interviewer, photographer, videographer and editor is Hadley Gustafson for NCHRC; additional interviews were performed by Tessie Castillo and Robert Childs. 2012.

                      Every City Needs Its Heroes. An epic tale of courage and hope, The Interrupters is a new film from Chicago-based director Steve James (Hoop Dreams) and award-winning author Alex Kotlowitz (There Are No Children Here), whose original article inspired the film. Filmed out of Chicago’s Kartemquin Films, The Interrupters follows a year in the life of the city as it grapples with the plague of urban violence. At the heart of the story are Ameena Matthews, Cobe Williams and Eddie Bocanegra, each of whom has credibility on the street because of their own personal histories. With gumption, wisdom and wit, they work to protect their Chicago communities from the violence they themselves once employed. These “Violence Interrupters” (their job title) – work for CeaseFire, a local organization whose guiding principle is that the spread of violence mimics the spread of infectious diseases, and so respond with similar treatment: go after the most infected, and stop the infection at its source. See it this summer: www.theinterrupters.com
