The host committee states, “Margo St. James, who founded the prostitutes’ rights organization COYOTE (Call Off Your Old Tired Ethics), and later, the St. James Infirmary, left her body on January 11, 2021. We are a group of Margo’s friends, colleagues, and a collective of supporters who are producing a virtual international tribute event on May 1 at 11 am PST / 2 pm EST. The event will run from one to two hours.”
