I'm posting to inform you of an organization for sex workers. Ever heard of SWOP? It's the Sex Workers Outreach Project. (www.swopusa.org
) At it’s most basic, is an anti-violence campaign, addressing the violence that sex workers experience because of their marginalized and/or criminal status. Sex workers are seldom afforded protection or recourse from violent acts committed against them because of the precarious, often graft-ridden relationship between sex work and law enforcement. Society tolerates violence against sex workers because of stigma and myths. Only until these falsehoods are corrected and sex work is legitimized will we be able to effectively prevent and minimize the challenges of sex work.
There are chapters all over the country and are really great. Boston, MA just opened the newest chapter, and we are looking for members! (swopboston.wordpress.com
) If you live in the Boston area and are interested in joining, shoot me a PM or comment with your email address and I'll get in contact with you about joining!
If you live elsewhere and would like to join a chapter local to you, check out the website for more info!
Hope to be hearing from you!
