When they aren’t volunteering with Parasol Outreach Project in Dallas, you can find them planning a local burn, singing a tune at a local show, or hiding under an unreasonable amount of blankets reading a book.
Her lived experience in survival and street based SW as a queer Afro Latina, and survivor of sexual violence and police brutality has molded her into an outspoken advocate for anti-racism, income equality, and sex worker rights.
As a WoC with chronic illness and mental health issues she is a passionate voice for mental health visibility, access to care, and speaking truth to gender and racial bias within healthcare frameworks.
Board of Directors
The SWOP-USA Board of Directors is comprised of current and retired sex workers, as well as allies. While we do not require that anyone involved in SWOP publicly disclose their sex worker status (except for the President of the Board), we internally ensure that no less than 3/4 of the board consists of people with direct experience in the sex trade. Our current board maximum is 11 members, with each member serving up to two consecutive two year terms. The SWOP-USA Board or Directors is a working board.

O.G. Serenity House Member and Executive Director.
We love you, Ladonna, and will continue to, “Hug the Block”, and, “Work with a Mission”, for years to come.
Ladonna was a core member of Serenity House since the early days, putting in countless hours of labor, and helping steward Serenity House into what it is today. It will not be the same space without her, and there is already a hole in our hearts because of this loss. We will be sharing information about her memorial and any needed support for her son and family. Thank you in advance.
