What Our Chapters Do

Chapters give lectures at local universities, develop and present trainings at conferences and social service agencies, and create and distribute resources to help educate the public and reduce individual and institutional violence against Sex Workers.
Chapters hold public events on International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers, Trans Day of Remembrance, and Sex Worker Rights Day,  organize marches and protests, engaging in media advocacy and more to help raise awareness of issues of violence, stigma and discrimination in Sex Worker communities.
Chapters advocate on behalf of sex workers and against institutional policies, practices and laws that increase violence and stigma against our communities.
Chapters support the development of new leaders through retreats, trainings, and education on rights, community organizing, and intersectional social justice frameworks.
Chapters create peer-led programming to support sex workers. They operate warm-lines and bad date lists, conduct online and street-based outreach, hold workshops, and develop informational resources for community members.
