***** Welcome to Alt.Sex.Prostitution! ***** Welcome to the alt.sex.prostitution Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) file. This is Part 3 of 4 parts. Part 1: General information about the newsgroup and the World Sex Guide. Part 2: Questions and information about prostitution in general, plus information on fighting spam. Part 3: List of organizations that support prostitution or prostitutes or are working to decriminalize prostitution. Part 4: Suggested reading list on prostitution and prostitutes' rights. ***** Organizations That Support Prostitution/Prostitutes Or Are Working To Decriminalize Prostitution Please note that these organizations are NOT for referrals to sex workers, especially in areas where prostitution is illegal. Don't waste your time and their's by asking. Cops ask them all the time to try to snag them for pandering. They cannot respond to such requests. These organizations' names, "snail mail" and e-mail addresses, telephone and FAX numbers change frequently due to the illegality of sex work in most countries and subsequent police harassment. A special thanks to Catherine La Croix of COYOTE/Seattle for supplying this list. Last updated 08/96. Organizations such as COYOTE are political advocacy groups and are not allowed 501(c)(3) non-profit tax status. Catherine has personally contributed about $20,000 of her own money to the cause.
