THIS IS NOT FOR REPORTING EMERGENCIES. This is not a tool for finding missing persons, nor is it a blacklist. If you or someone else is in immediate danger, please contact the Sex Worker's Outreach Project Community Support Line - (877) 776-2004 (Select 1). Reporting it to us can wait!
If you are an ally, please remember contacting the police with regards to sex workers can, itself, result in the deaths of sex workers. Talk over the options with a sex worker peer led organization first. We will try to verify reports for long term study, but we are not able to directly help with any incidents.
This form is one of several available to help compile an understanding of the impact of SESTA/FOSTA on our community. It is for reporting instances of impacted safety since FOSTA first passed the House on 2/27/2018. There is very little way for us to confirm a direct link to the legislation in all incidents, so for now we are collecting any incident involving the harm of a sex worker after that date.
If you are reporting something that happened to you, please consider taking the survey by COYOTE RI and SWOP Behind Bars.
This is an encrypted form and data will not be supplied to governments, law enforcement, or the media. Right now the data is not being supplied to anyone and we are not even looking at it ourselves until we have figured out the proper channels. Right now it goes to the encrypted inbox for ISCS and only Liara Roux has the "key" to decrypt it until our advisory council is assembled.
We are accepting all reports, verified and unverified, of people who have been harmed, missing, or involved in any sort of violence or abuse including suicide or moving to working under a bad manager (aka pimp or trafficker) since the passing of these laws and associated loss of safety resources.
Long term, this tool will help us inform both community response, policy, direction of harm reduction and safety resources and help get data for studies and reporting on the impact to our community.
You can fill out this form to the best of your knowledge and NO PART IS REQUIRED. You can come back to the form to make multiple reports.
Please keep in mind your safety and the wishes of any parties involved in terms of sharing identifying information. The raw results will NOT be made available to the public, to protect vulnerable parties.
Any questions can be emailed to ISCS@lbmail.co (which is an encrypted protonmail address) and we will try to get back to you as time allows.
