***** Organizations That Support Prostitution/Prostitutes
      Or Are Working To Decriminalize Prostitution

Please note that these organizations are NOT for referrals to sex
workers, especially in areas where prostitution is illegal.  Don't
waste your time and their's by asking.  Cops ask them all the time to
try to snag them for pandering.  They cannot respond to such requests.

These organizations' names, "snail mail" and e-mail addresses,
telephone and FAX numbers change frequently due to the illegality of
sex work in most countries and subsequent police harassment.  A
special thanks to Catherine La Croix of COYOTE/Seattle for supplying
this list.  Last updated 08/96.

Organizations such as COYOTE are political advocacy groups and are not
allowed 501(c)(3) non-profit tax status.  Catherine has personally
contributed about $20,000 of her own money to the cause.  Donations of
money or in-kind, e.g. printing, office equipment (copiers et. al.),
etc., to this or other organizations below are always appreciated and
helpful.

     The North American Task Force on Prostitution (NTFP) was
     founded in 1979, to act as an umbrella organization for
     prostitutes and prostitutes' rights organizations in
     different parts of the United States. In 1994, its scope
     was expanded to include organizations and individuals who
     support the rights of prostitutes and other sex workers.
     The NTFP is thus a network of sex workers, sex workers'
     rights organizations, and individuals and organizations
     that support the rights of sex workers to organize on their
     own behalf, work safely and without legal repression, travel
     without legal restrictions, have families and raise children,
     and enjoy the same rights, responsibilities, and privileges
     as other people. Affiliated organizations include:
     COYOTE-San Francisco, COYOTE-Los Angeles, HIRE-Atlanta,
     PONY-New York, SWAC-San Francisco, SWAT-Toronto, and
     Willing Women Workers-Minneapolis/St. Paul.

     The NTFP is affiliated with the International Committee for
     Prostitutes Rights (ICPR), based in the Netherlands, with a
     growing number of affiliated organizations in Europe, North
     and South America, Australasia, and Africa, and the Network
     of Sex Work Projects, based in the United Kingdom.

     The Sex Workers' Alliance of Vancouver was founded in 1994
     to fight for sex workers' rights to fair wages and working
     conditions that are safe, clean and healthy. We are people
     who work or have worked in the sex industry and our friends.
     We meet informally to develop and implement ways to make the
     sex trade a safer and healthier place to work. With this aim
     SWAV opposes any law that criminalizes work in the sex trade.
     Currently, SWAV publishes a Bad Calls List (a database of
     descriptions of violent men who pose as clients of pros who
     make dates over the phone), health and legal information and
     provides free condoms. Members are available for support for
     others working in the sex trade and to educate service
     providers about the needs of sex workers.  SWAV is a member
     of the North American Task Force on Prostitution (NTFP), the
     International Committee for Prostitutes' Rights (ICPR) and
     the Network of Sex Work Projects. SWAV is not an agency of
     the government, nor does it receive any government funding.
