A commemoration of the International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers begins with a performance-art die-in and installation at Jácome Plaza at 4:30 p.m., Tuesday, Dec. 17; free. Stilt performers, acrobats, circus performers and bodies create a living memorial. Visitors are encouraged to wear red, bring a red umbrella and wear a white mask, which will be provided. At 5 p.m., following the performance, a procession walks to El Tiradito shrine, 420 S.
