Who do you work with?

We work with current and former sex workers of all genders in Australia.

How are sex workers involved in your organisation?

We are a peer-led sex worker organisation. Our Constitution stipulates that all members and leadership positions must be held by sex  workers. In addition to this we have an affirmative action policy which prioritises sex workers.

Which of NSWP priority areas does your organisation work on?
Oppose the criminalisation and other legal oppression of sex work and support its recognition as work
Speak out about violence against sex workers, including violence from police, institutions, clients, and intimate partners, while challenging the myth that sex work is inherently gender-based violence
Challenge stigma and discrimination against sex workers, their families and partners, and others involved in sex work
Advocate for the economic empowerment and social inclusion of sex workers as sex workers
What are the two main challenges that the sex workers you work with face

Isolation and violence in the workplace. Our online service provides a community space where workers can network and share safety resources Australia-wide.

Red Files provides an online platform for workers to network, connect and share ugly mug reports and resources about safety, health and business. We also promote referral pathways to connect sex workers with their local state based organisations and relevant services in their local area.
