I'm considering attending the Craigslist Foundation's Nonprofit Boot Camp in Berkeley this August, to bring back some skills to St. James Infirmary. We offer free, confidential, nonjudgmental medical and social services for female, transgendered, and male sex workers. We are also the first occupational safety and health clinic for sex workers anywhere run by and for sex workers. Sex workers and craigslist, seems like an obvious fit, and one Mr. Newmark himself is often asked about in the press. The good things I've heard about the Foundation also make me curious to check it out.
But I wonder, what will I learn and what will I also be able to contribute to this conference? Any past attendees have tips and stories to share? What should I anticipate? What experiences do you have to share about sex workers and nonprofit fundraising?
(You can also come tell me in person if you'll be attending BlogHer on July 29th, where I'll be on the "Let's Talk About Sex" panel with Halley Suitt, Susie Bright, and Logan Levkoff.)
