ABOUT THE COMMUNITY PARTNER

The SWOP-Chicago Community Activism Law Clinic is a free, full-service legal clinic for individuals currently or previously involved in adult industries/sex work or impacted by the stigma and criminalization of sex work. It provides a wide-range of criminal and civil law services from advice and community legal education to representation.  All legal services, including full representation, are completely free of charge to clients. We host one as an outreach clinic, usually in partnership with a Chicago based non-profit that services people who may have been involved with the sex trade, or may have been unstably housed in the past year.

ABOUT THE COMMUNITY PARTNER

Sex Workers Outreach Project Chicago [SWOP-Chicago] is a grassroots organization dedicated to improving the lives of current and former sex workers in the Chicago area, on and off of the job.

SWOP-Chicago members are current and former sex workers — including prostitutes, professional dominants, porn actors, strippers, and sex educators — and academic and activist allies, working together to ensure that sex workers are allowed healthy and fulfilling labor and lives. We represent a diverse range of experience and background.
