For the past month, Portland strippers have been organizing against racial discrimination in Portland clubs. They are calling on clubs to implement cultural sensitivity training, and provide equal opportunities for Black, indigenous, and other strippers of color. Strippers involved with the strike are refusing to work at clubs that have not met their demands. Cat Hollis, an organizer of the movement, tells us about her experience as Black stripper in Portland, and how her new nonprofit Haymarket Pole Collective is working toward racial equity for the profession.
