If you work for an agency
Note that we are a volunteer collective, not a nonprofit organization. But we do offer trainings and consulting services for remuneration (you can connect with us for our fee structure).
Before doing anything else, you may want to start by developing an organizational position statement supporting sex workers, and having it approved by your Board of Directors. This is helpful for making sure everyone in the organization is on the same page–or if they’re not, at least having those conversations out in the open. It’s also something we can help with. 😉
For general questions, you can check out our Get Involved page to see how to reach us, and we might be able to answer your question or connect you to someone who can.
