Sex Workers Outreach Project New York City (SWOP-NYC) and Sex Workers Action New yorK (SWANK) are both volunteer-based, grassroots organizations and part of a national network dedicated to improving the lives of current and former sex workers and those with experience in the sex trade in the New York metro area, on and off of the job. Each month, we hold two meetings and operate listservs to connect with others in between those times. Below is some more detailed information about what we offer.

Want to get involved?

Now is the perfect time! Our next SWOP-NYC meeting (Thursday, Nov 21) is going to be about planning our projects for the next year AND WE WANT TO HEAR YOUR IDEAS!

SWOP-NYC meetings focus on our organizing work, planning events, and engaging in activism. Meetings are open to everyone who wants to work on the subject of sex worker rights and are held on the third Thursday of each month from 7-9pm. The locations are confidential to screened members, so please visit http://swop-nyc.org/wpress/join/ if you would like to be screened for attendance. We discuss ongoing projects, upcoming events, and different topics impacting folks in the sex trade in NYC.

SWANK meetings are for current/former/transitioning workers only and focus on community building and direct peer support. They are held on the first Wednesday of each month. Typically, SWANK meetings are loose and without much structure, and the conversation really moves to where ever people want it to go! Come to talk, share, ask, or just be in the company of others who work in the sex trade.

Professional Development Workshops are for current/former/transitioning workers only, and cover topics from marketing to coming out to industry-based skill shares.
