A survey is being conducted to help draft policy recommendation that promote the health and safety of US sex workers by sex worker rights-led organizations. It will also help identify what barriers sex workers face in accessing services, protecting their sexual health and reporting violence.
This research is being conducted in collaboration with Coyote Rhode Island (RI), Desiree Alliance, Swop Behind Bars, and Brown University. This is an anonymous online survey and will take approximately 30 to 45 minutes complete.
For more information and to take the survey, please click here.
Tomorrow, Saturday, August 5th we’ll be hosting our monthly support group for current and former sex workers at 405 W. Superior, 7th Floor in Chicago. This month, we’ll be discussing “coming out, secrecy, and privacy.” Please join us to receive and offer support to others in the community!
