COVID19 Response Fund for sex workers in DC area

No Justice No Pride, HIPS and other #DecrimNow organizations are collaborating on a relief fund to DC Area and DMV based sex workers impacted by the coronavirus outbreak. As has been reported elsewhere — sex workers are facing unique challenges with the pandemic.

Before we go in on how we are concerned for sex workers who may suffer from loss of clients as this crisis affects the economy, we are concerned about how the spread of COVID-19 may affect work environments for sex workers.

Transmission has most been documented by individuals who are traveling, sex workers often work out of motels and we are concerned about potential crossover. The isolation, including from financial networks & social networks with resources; many sex workers face in their typical lives will greatly increase their barriers to support in this time.
