Learn About Boot Camp!

MO Ho Justice

04/27/21

Thanks for showing interest in our Sex Worker Advocacy Boot Camp! We’re thrilled to offer trainings worth thousands of dollars. Participants will learn from local sex workers, allies, and MO Ho Justice staff organizers. You will get the chance to bring your community with you as you’re trained by organizing two community events, and a community shaping campaign. We value the time and commitment we’re requiring so our twelve campers will be paid, receive a delivered food order for each meeting, a gift bag upon completion, and skills to last a lifetime. Together we can shape Missouri for the better!
