Her are some upcoming events in April around the Bay Area and in Sacramento that are definitely worth checking out and supporting. If any of you know of any other events/fundraisers please post up the recommendations on the comments section.
Saturday April 14th is the "Hookers Ball," sponsored by the Harvey Milk Democratic Club, to benefit the Erotic Services Providers Union. Here's a picture of the flyer for the event. The ESPU is a great organization which seeks to gain rights for sex workers through associating with organized labor and change legislation through methods of direct action to stop the discrimination of sex workers. Last year Slutwalk had an amazing speaker form the ESPU come and talk about her job to the crowd.
