Great news from Colorado! This bill allows s*x workers to report crimes in CO without fear of being arrested. A friend, Pasha Eve, spearheaded it and I'm so proud of her!

"That healing [of peer support] is central to St. James’ mission for the space. Stephany Ashley, St. James’ former executive director, consulted on the opening of the center. “Trans people, and especially trans feminine people, experience so much violence on a daily basis,” she said. “It’s one thing to have a home to go to at the end of the day, and a door to close, that’s your safe space. But for people who are unhoused, there’s never that moment where you’re not subjected to that violence. This place is really going to be a refuge. That’s what’s been missing from the system of care.”

Yesterday we were honored to join St James Infirmary, San Francisco Department of Homelessness & Supportive Housing, and community members at an opening reception for the Taimon Booton Navigation Center, which will serve trans and gender non-conforming San Franciscans experiencing homelessness. Thanks and congratulations to our Trans Advisory Committee member Joaquin Remora of Our Trans Home SF and all others who helped make this important resource a reality.
Looking forward to the opening of this new navigation center next week! Thanks to our Trans Advisory Committee member Joaquin Remora and St James Infirmary for supporting the community.

[SWIPE 👉🏼] What can neurorelaxers do for you?

Quite a bit, actually!

Neurorelaxers (like Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin) can:
1️⃣ help smooth out fine forehead lines, 👉🏼
2️⃣ give a little lift to your brows, and 👉🏼
3️⃣ soften the appearance of frown lines.

Neurorelaxers can also provide relief from migraines and TMJ (for our jaw-clenching friends), by doing just what the name implies – relaxing the muscles of the face and jaw to relieve tension.

If you’re thinking of giving yourself the gift of a smoother, more refreshed appearance, there’s no time like the present to care for yourself by extending your generosity to our community 👉🏼

When you donate $250 or more to any of the organizations listed below before the end of this year, North Bay will say thank you by giving you a full facial tox treatment for FREE:
The Spahr Center
Lyon-Martin Health Services
St James Infirmary
The Transgender District

Keep your eyes on our feed in the coming weeks as we share more about these fabulous organizations and how they serve our LGBTQIA+ and gender-expansive community.

Learn more about them, and get more information about our fundraiser, here: https://northbay.co/free-tox-fundraiser/
If you're in SF and witness DPW, SFPD, Urban Alchemy, city organizations or people stealing the belongings of your unhoused neighbors, hit up the Sweeps Watch Hotline at (510) 399-2394

“Please help 2 sex workers get to Belgium to a Sex Worker Art Fest. One of us is a single hard working queer Chicana/Indigenous mama to a non-binary 13 year old. One of us is a Black woman sex worker. We both work for a sex worker organization and would love to represent our organization and meet sex workers in Belgium where they have just DECRIMINALIZED SEX WORK! This would be such an amazing opportunity but we need some financial help to make it happen! We gotta buy our plane tickets and lodging, food and any miscellaneous. Please anything would help including sharing this go fund me! Thank you so much!!! ❤️”

Posted @withregram • @coalitiononhomelessness Our friends at CART, the Compassionate Alternative Response Team, dropped some knowledge on how CART- a community based alternative to the police response of homelessness will work in San Francisco.

In last year's budget cycle CART secured over $3 million in funding to begin the implementation stage but is being stalled out by Mayor Breed.

As we approach a new budget cycle, we need all hands on deck to and to tell Mayor Breed to stop the stalling!

🖥Check out our blog post on !💻

“In recent weeks, workers at St. James Infirmary listened closely to the high-pitched declaration of ‘emergency’ for the Tenderloin, coming from centers of power in San Francisco. We agree that there is indeed a state of emergency in the Tenderloin, SoMa, across San Francisco, and far beyond: the overdose epidemic, the prevalence of untreated addiction, and the number of people living unhoused are emergencies. As overdose rates skyrocketed in 2020, a slogan became popular in the harm reduction movement: ‘every overdose is a policy failure.’ These horrifying trends should have and could have been reversed long ago, and they warrant immediate action on the part of the city. But the Mayor’s emergency order will not uproot the causes that underlie and reproduce these crises–in fact, coercive and repressive governance will exacerbate drug addiction, overdose, homelessness, and crimes of poverty.

[...]

“We write this statement to respond to the actions of the Mayor, the Board of Supervisors, and the Department of Emergency Management, as well as the San Francisco Police Department, who are responsible for this crackdown [they call ‘cleaning up the streets’]. We are offended by the ‘crime and punishment’ rhetoric that promises a renewed war on drugs, and a renewed war on the poor in San Francisco–in which most of the targets will surely be people of color, immigrants, and poor people. We oppose this continuation of the pro-police ‘war on crime’ governance that has resulted in underfunded public and social services, alongside the privatization of public space, and a thriving police and prison industry across the United States.”

Hi again! I’m back with the Notes From The Naughty Nurse Mobile! This week has been exciting as usual! Last Saturday we were in the Mission testing when a person carrying 2 naked inflatable s*x dolls walked by. We debated asking for a mini photo shoot but then a few minutes later a photographer walked by who had done just that. They had just come from photographing a nearby political event and were snapping shots of the street scene including some shots of us with our van. Hopefully they’ll send me a photo. Outreach with the street workers continues to be going great! We love chatting with the workers when possible and have even been getting some surveys filled out for the upcoming zine! On Tuesday we did the Pop Up Care Village with Lava Mae. That’s always pretty awesome. It’s like a free street fair demonstrating radical hospitality. There’s music, food, clothing, hygiene bags, haircuts, listening stations and several organizations provide medical services including us. On Wednesday night we were stationed on Polk St and had a great time with the ladies. They tease and sparkle, charm and hustle in their fierce beauty. We saw our regulars and a few new including a purple s*xy bunny in a onesie with her lively buddy. They are all my super sheroes! We gave out all the ho packs we had and had to quickly make more. One of our workers was s*xually grabbed which really sucks. We must all stay vigilant against misogyny, supporting each other, looking out for each other, having each other’s backs. I’m excited to announce some good news! We’ve added another driver so now we can do more outreach shifts! Happy Pride month y’all! And if you see us out there on the street I hope you’ll come say hi! And thank you so much for all the ways you support St James and all your communities! Love, Celestina
