Sex Workers Outreach Project Los Angeles (SWOP LA), at its most basic, is an anti-violence campaign. As a multi-state network of sex workers and advocates, we address locally
and nationally the violence that sex workers experience because of their criminal status. Operating in one of the most prominently violent societies today, sex workers in America experience this phenomenon pointedly in the context of their criminal status. SWOP works to educate policy-makers and the public on the institutional harms committed against sex workers, and advocates for alternatives.
SWOP promotes proven and effective social policy approaches to the sex industry. In order to reach its goals, SWOP adopts the principles and practices of nonviolent action in order to reduce violence and achieve dignity and rights for sex workers.
