Sex Workers Outreach Project (SWOP)-USA

e35127458b8e6a84606860fe6df2e6fd

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

SWOP, at its most basic, is an anti-violence campaign. 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.

Operating in one of the most prominently violent societies today, sex workers in the USA experience this phenomenon pointedly in the context of their criminal status. Yet, 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 the stigma and myths that surround prostitution. Only until these falsehoods are corrected and sex workers are legitimized will we be able to effectively prevent and minimize the structural and occupational challenges of sex work.

Abeni (Orange County, CA)

Abeni exists to create a safe, confidential place for those working in the Orange County sex trades, as well as those being domestically sex trafficked.

We aim to be a present source of relevant, relational, and holistic support for those who are working or have worked in the adult entertainment industry…

Some of us at Abeni remember what it was like when we were in the sex industry. Sometimes we just wanted a friend, someone to walk alongside us with no expectations, with no agenda, and no ulterior motives. Some of us really enjoyed our time in the industry, as well as the flexibility and economic freedom it offered. When we decided that we wanted to change our circumstances, we needed emotional encouragement and contacts to find jobs, housing, educational opportunities, and social circles. We needed access to services and resources, but we didn’t know where to get them. That’s why we’re here now.

While we heard lots of people outside the industry talking about the industry, we realized that not a lot of people were listening to those currently in the industry.  We knew that we needed to listen to their stories, see the world through their lens, and learn from their experiences.

The understanding that resulted changed everything for us and helped shape Abeni into who we are now, as well as who we’re committed to becoming in the future.

Red Light Legal is a fledgling organization that provides direct legal services, legal representation, community education, and policy advocacy to sex workers in all corners of the industry. Utilizing harm-reductionist and anti-oppression methodologies, Red Light Legal is the first constituency-led legal organization providing services to this marginalized population.

Red Light Legal joins TGI Justice Project and CURB as Justice Now’s fiscally-sponsored projects. Like Justice Now, we believe policing and prisons are not making our communities safer and that the current system severely damages the communities most affected by criminalization and stigmatization.

APLE (Hawaii)

Why should Hawaii’s prostitution laws be reformed?

APLE (Arresting Prostitutes is Legal Exploitation) believes laws should further some legitimate interest of the community and not simply harass citizens designated as outcasts. Criminal prostitution laws are a hold over from an era when there were laws against sodomy and adultery, and debtors were sent to prison. Today laws against prostitution are defended on the grounds that they keep prostitutes from walking the streets and offending people who don’t want to see them there. However, these laws are ineffectual at preventing prostitution and in fact, make it more difficult to address the harms of prostitution since they simply drive the problems underground.
