ABOUT US 

The Organization for Prostitution Survivors (OPS) was founded by survivors of commercial sexual exploitation (CSE) and allies to end the violence of prostitution and change cultural norms around oppression, exploitation, and violence against women. OPS provides services in three areas: (1) advocacy, harm reduction, and exit services for survivors, (2) education and training on CSE and changing cultural norms of gender-based violence, and (3) technical assistance and policy efforts to increase survivor access to social capital and political power, improve services for survivors, and end CSE. Around 80% of OPS staff are CSE survivors, and we prioritize elevating and empowering survivors across the organization, movement, and our communities.
