Bad Date Alert

Please call 1-866-509-SAFE or email safephila@gmail.com to be added to our BDA mailing list.

Bad date reports are for and by working women and serve only as a form of protection from possible harm. If there are any errors in a report or you would like to request a bad date sheet of current offenders, please contact us by calling the number above. Please report any bad dates you may have experienced so that other women are better prepared to know who to watch out for. You can place a report by calling 866-509-SAFE (7233) and leaving a detailed physical description of the attacker and what happened. Thanks for taking the time to participate in this program. Stay safe.

The bad date sheet is completely anonymous and we do not share reports with the police. You have a right to report any attacks to the police but we will not pressure you to do so. Always remember, no matter who you are, where you live, what you do for a living, and what drugs you may or may not be using, if you have been raped or beaten while working it is an assault. Seek medical attention as soon as possible. In the Philadelphia area, free medical treatment is provided to rape victims at Episcopal Hospital (Front and Lehigh) and Thomas Jefferson University Hospital (Center City). You can also call the Women Organized Against Rape (WOAR) 24 hour hotline (215-985-3333) to get advice or have an advocate accompany you to the hospital. Lastly, do not hesitate to seek medical help for fear of being picked up on warrants or arrested for prostituting. You have the right to remain anonymous and to receive a free rape kit exam. Rape is a crime and it is not your fault.
