Inclusivity & accessibility

We are committed to on-going personal growth and education so that we can uphold, to the best of our abilities, the anti-racism and anti-oppression values held by SWOP-USA. We all come from different backgrounds and have different experiences, and we strive to create a place where everyone can share and contribute without fear of judgement.

SWOP-Minneapolis is committed to ensure that our meetings and events are accessible to all sex workers. If getting to or participating in meetings presents a challenge, we encourage you to inform us of potential barriers so we can work together and try to find a workable solution.
