Other Resources:

Sex Workers Outreach Project-USA is a national grassroots social justice network dedicated to the fundamental human rights of sex workers and their communities, focusing on ending violence and stigma through education, community building, and advocacy. SWOP is committed to the safety, autonomy, and human rights of people in the sex trade, and stands in solidarity with the many social justice movements intersectional to our own, including but not limited to Black Lives Matter, disability rights, drug and immigration reform, gender equality and the LGBTQ movement, and the rights of the working class.

SWOP Behind Bars
SWOP Behind Bars uses a harm reduction framework to offer various resources, community-building projects, educational programs, and advocacy to end violence and stigma against sex workers in the criminal justice system.  This includes those currently incarcerated and those seeking re-entry services.

We are an online based, community run sex worker mutual care collective. As people in the industry, we understand how exploitation plays into our field, like any other job, because sex work is WORK! Our goals are to protect our autonomy and decision making while also acknowledging that there are people who have lesser access to making choices about their involvement in this industry, to protect folks who have chosen this industry for any number of reasons and to protect folks who didn’t by working together as a collective to provide education, exchange life saving information, and provide access to resources.

Lola Davina
Lola spent more than 25 years in and around the sex industry, working as a stripper, dominatrix, porn actress, and escort over a fifteen-year period. She earned an M.A. in Human Sexuality and an M.S. in Nonprofit Fundraising, and writes a self-care and wellness column for Her website is full of great info as well as a TON of mental health resources for sex workers.

Molly House Project
Molly House Project is a community of bois, men, and masculine-of-center* trans folk committed to changing the way we talk about sex work. We came into fruition in the wake of the Rentboy raid and passing of FOSTA-SESTA legislation, and help build stronger communities by addressing structural, cultural, and interpersonal barriers to wellness and safety in the industry. In addition to offering social and educational support, we help our communities unlearn manifestations of toxic masculinity that promote stigma and hinder mobilization. In doing so, we hope to integrate masculine voices into the larger sex work movement in ways that support, not derail, progress toward sex worker rights.

Red Umbrella Fund
