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.

Next Meeting: Thurs, November 21, 6:30 – 7: mingling and meeting folks, 7 – 9: meeting
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.
