Sex Workers Outreach Project USA

Welcome to the new and improved SWOP-USA website! We’re going through many changes as an organization and a digital overhaul is part of that. You’ll find an entirely new resource section, our Chapter Hub site has moved here, and we’ll also be producing significantly more resource sheets in the coming months.

Sex Workers Outreach Project-USA is a national social justice network dedicated to the fundamental human rights of people involved in the sex trade and their communities, focusing on ending violence and stigma through education and advocacy.

Things that frustrate me:

When compiling the D17 list, I get far more results when I search for "murdered prostitute" as opposed to "sex worker"

Even in death, there's stigma.

So the shift to "AI" combined with a moral panic over social media combined with a decimated manual review team at Twitter to reinstate falsely reported or removed accounts threatens a huge amount of the creator economy. https://twitter.com/mikestabile/status/1597686689757298688

In 2020, over 15% of adult creators lost their Twitter account. That's a huge amount of revenue stolen from the creator community —  often as result of mass reports by antis and trolls.

Criminalization does not make us safe, police don't make us safe, restricting childhood education does not make us safe. In fact, I know the opposite to be true. Health equity creates safety, access to basic human rights creates safety, education helps create understanding and empowers us to treat ourselves and others better. What does safety mean to you? #truesafety #harmreductionislove ... See MoreSee Less
