ESPLERP Update for April 2019
JAN 10 • Thank you so much for your fair and balanced coverage of the 15th Annual IDTEVASW. Since 2012 SWOP and SAFE have strived to stand up and speak out in Philly on issues specific to stigma and gratuitous violence against sex workers. Folks are always amazed at how hard and painful this event is to do, yet in the end how truly blessed we are to be able to come together to do it. Many households in most areas of Greater Philadelphia, if not all of PA, are touched somehow by this issue. Talking about sex work and prostitution is hard. Living in shame and silence is harder. D/17 is not fun, though it is full of love. Truly. We are here because we have been there, and we care. Our voice is their voice. Thank you for covering the memorial. Words cannot even express the gratitude I feel right now. Philly is proving we got LOVE!

We strive to share our sex work knowledge and experiences, however we do not need our views omitted or exploited in the mainstream.
Senator McGuire - As a former victim of U.S. domestic minor sex trafficking, I appeal to your compassion. Sex trafficking victims and sex workers need equal access to the law without discrimination, and without fear of harassment or arrest. SB 21 would allow anyone in Alaska’s sex trade, whether by choice, circumstance, or coercion, to … Continue reading AK SB 21: Pa Contributes Support
Police can touch my what? Sexual interaction with women under investigation for sex trafficking and prostitution?
HAWAII: You shouldn’t write any legislation that would allow law enforcement to sexually assault or abuse vulnerable populations in any way and that’s what HB 1902 proposes to do in section 12(5). Legislation like this prevents sex trafficking victims and prostitutes from access to equal protection under the law and the due process protections of the justice system.
