Our experience in the industry has taught us that one of the best ways to ensure that sex workers are able to work in ways that preserve their safety and well being is access to financial resources during difficult times in their lives and careers. In such a diverse industry anything from economic slow downs, the shut down of advertising platforms, burn out, illness, injury, homelessness, wrongful arrest and incarceration, unstable or abusive working conditions, domestic violence, discrimination and a myriad of other factors can often negatively and drastically effect sex workers' ability to do their job in the ways that are best for them. Such circumstances are often exacerbated by other marginalizing factors such as race, gender, class, parenthood and chronic illness. Often, people in our community have to resort to individual fundraisers such as gofundme to cover expenses such as unexpected medical bills, to develop new skills to aid in diversifying their incomes, and in the wake of violent events that render them unable to work. To try and help cover some of these expenses before they spiral out of control we have started an emergency fund to support the most vulnerable people in the sex industry and give our community somewhere to turn when they are facing hardships. We also assist in organizing fundraisers for individuals in need, especially survival workers who have less access to large online followings and technology that are important to the success of crowd funding campaigns. We also aim to contribute to and promote personal individual's fundraisers within our community!
