Donating to SWOP-Seattle & SASS:
SASS is produced and hosted by SWOP-Seattle, and any funds left over that we earn during SASS go right back into our programming and annual expenses. By donating to SASS, you are enabling us to build platform from which sex workers can speak (as opposed to be spoken for), and helping us to push the agenda of human rights for all.  SWOP-Seattle has a lengthy track record of putting sex workers rights into the mainstream, and via SASS, we are able to reach new audiences and bring in diverse speakers from across the country. Thank you for supporting SASS!

Financial Sponsorship

Let’s be frank…this event costs money to run, and we can use all the help we can get! Our first SASS in Dec 2014 was a HUGE hit, as was the following March 2016 SASS!  We had numerous sold out events, featuring eye-opening discussions and performances of considerable depth. We also hosted tremendously successful social events for current and retired sex workers, offering safe peer support space for over 70 participants! Supporting SASS is an effective way to empower the sex worker rights movement, and to help shift cultural attitudes around a heavily stigmatized topic. Your help paves the way for a world where people have a right to bodily autonomy, to earn a living in a way that best suits their needs, and to interact with other consenting adults without fear of extreme social shaming or incarceration.

That said, please peruse our fabulous sponsorship packages…
