Pittsburgh Coalition for Safer Sex Work

Mission - Create a Pittsburgh where Sex Workers can do their job safely without fear of incarceration, stigma, or violence.

Current Initiative - Reduce the punishment for prostitution charges. 

Today, a worker picked up for prostitution can be charged with a criminal misdemeanor, a charge that can come with huge fines, jail time, and future struggles finding work in vanilla industries.

We are working to pass a Pittsburgh and Allegheny county ordinance that reduces those charges to a summary charge with no jail time and a small fine or community service. 

Letter of support - Join organizations and individuals across Pittsburgh by signing this letter to support the new ordinance.
