We are fundraising to support building and sustaining radical sex working community in Chicago & NYC!

Right now, a formerly incarcerated, criminalized survivor needs your support.

We're asking you to show up for our comrade, Alisha Walker by giving to her post-release support fund. Help us raise these much needed funds in preparation for her return home from prison. Your gift will ensure Alisha can begin establishing a home, plan for her future and focus on her healing journey.

Who are we?

The Support Ho(s)e Collective is a small Leftist formation of sex workers (current and former) and our trusted co-conspirators based in Chicago and New York City. We aim to build radical community for all sex workers through political education and public agitation. We also coordinate the Justice for Alisha Walker Defense Campaign.

We provide resource-based support for grassroots organizing, including lessons learned on building popular defense campaigns for criminalized survivors of gender-based violence, sex worker-centered political education syllabi, planning protests and demonstrations, holding space for in/formal knowledge sharing sessions, and tool-kits on Media and Health/Wellness from sex working perspectives.

All of our collective members currently have experience in the commercial sex industry or trade, and/or have been organizing in adjacent queer & trans* community struggles for many years.

We listen, learn from and center our lived experiences and the experiences of our periphery (and the broader sex working community) as we work toward workers’ rights, ending stigma, decriminalizing all survival, and building spaces for radicalization and political action.

*All funds come to us through this platform processed by The Uptown People's Law Center, and are tax deductible, as permitted by law.*

Our collective wishes to extend heartfelt gratitude to all those who give and to our comrades Lifted Voices and UPLC, who made this platform possible.
