Project SAFE is for and by sex workers in Philadelphia. We support each other with the following programs:
- Ladies Night: Open to all who identify as a woman or non-binary sex worker, Ladies Night is a weekly drop-in space for the community to access a meal, showers, clean clothes, harm reduction supplies, and community support.
- Outreach: Find us on Kensington Ave a couple nights a week distributing harm reduction supplies and bad date sheets.
- Project SAFE community center: We finally have our own space! We are open once a week with a drop-in space for participants to access a meal, showers, clean clothes, harm reduction supplies, and community support.
We only deliver supplies to community members (sex workers & drug users . Deliveries are made once a week and are not available to men. Call 866-509-SAFE any time to arrange for a delivery of condoms, bad date sheets, etc. If you leave a message on our machine, provide a number where we can reach you, the best time for us to call you back, and your first name.
- Medical & Legal advocacy
We support our community by supporting people who are dealing with the medical or legal system. In the hospital or have a court date? We got your back. Contact us for help.
- Bad Date Sheet
Our bad date sheet lists brief descriptions of men who have attacked and/or raped sex workers. Bad date sheets are only given to sex workers and community members. Report a bad date by calling 866-509-SAFE and leaving a description of the attacker’s physical appearance, the car, where it happened and the time & date of the attack.
- Political advocacy: We participate in the Coalition for a Just DA, and actively work to further the rights of sex workers in Philadelphia. We support #decrimnow and work for a world where all sex workers, indoor, street based, and online, have human rights and fair working conditions.
