About Us

Sex Workers Outreach Project is a social justice network dedicated to ending violence and stigma against sex workers through education and advocacy. SWOP works to create a strong community of sex workers and allies to support each other and educate the public on the institutional harms committed against sex workers.

Sex workers are seldom afforded protection or recourse from violence because of the precarious relationship between sex work and law enforcement. Violence against sex workers is tolerated because of the stigma and myths that surround the sex industry. Only when those falsehoods are corrected and sex workers are legitimized will we be able to effectively prevent and minimize the harsh challenges of sex work. If you are interested in being a part of our group as an former sex worker, current sex worker or alli please contact us through email at swopphilly@gmail.com.

We are just forming a Philadelphia Chapter. Please feel free to check out the national network at www.swopusa.org and see the great activists from other cities fighting on behalf of women, men and trans people in this industry.

If you are interested in direct service, please checkout our friends at Project SAFE: www.safephila.org
