About SWOP USA
The 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. As a multi-state network of sex workers and advocates, we address locally and nationally the violence that sex workers experience because of their criminal status.

- The recognition of sex work as work and a commitment to decriminalization of sex work in all forms.
- A commitment to working with our allies to attack the broader policing and criminalization of our communities, including people of color, gender minorities, migrants, drug users, indigenous women, and low-income women.
