 The In Defense of Prostitute Women’s Safety project (IDPWS) is an anti-sexist, anti-racist, independent community resource that provides legal advice and other support for prostitute women who have been raped and/or sexually assaulted.  Run by women from similar backgrounds, IDPWS respects women’s confidentiality and privacy. IDPWS is pressing for the implementation of the City’s resolution calling for the protection of sex workers over prosecution and builds public awareness campaigns to end violence against sex workers.

 Co-sponsors: Ladies Night/Mission Neighborhood Resource Center; Women’s Community Clinic; SF Needle Exchange; Care Through Touch Institute; Metropolitan Community Foundation; Mission Agenda; Wages Due Lesbians; Legal Action for Women.

No Woman is Safe When Prostitute Women Aren’t Safe!

IDPWS is partially funded by the Commission on the Status of Women.
