Another AMLO constituency: Aging prostitutes
In a strange irony, NPR's ATC ran a story on Mexican Mother's Day about aging prostitutes in Mexico City. (Some of the prostitutes have 11 or 12 children.) The women organized, and in response, Lopez Obrador donated an old building to create a shelter for prostitutes over 65, though funding is still needed to remodel the old building for use.
Thanks to Schroeder for the link.
I also have an earlier post about another organization working with sex workers in Mexico City.
