SWOP Baltimore

SWOP Baltimore is collaborating with other local sex workers and organizations in launching a sex worker mutual aid fund. Sex workers were already vulnerable before COVID-19 and now with social distancing and the increased difficulty of accessing healthcare direct relief funds are necessary for keeping sex workers safe and housed.

Funds donated here will be split 50/50 between SWOP Baltimore and Baltimore Safe Haven to directly support sex workers in this uncertain time.
