SWOP Behind Bars is a registered 501C3 Non-Profit and all of your donations are tax deductible!  Your donation helps us meet a variety of needs that incarcerated women face while serving their sentence as well as a once they are released.  Incarcerated sex workers leave prison with nothing other than the clothes on their back, a bus ticket and $50!  You can help us make the transition easier by donating money so we can help them with the barest of necessities!  In addition to a monthly newsletter sent directly to those who are behind bars, we also connect folks inside of prison to pen pals on the outside and we create Amazon Wishlists for incarcerated sex workers for our community members to fill and we are working towards funding scholarship programs for college level learning opportunities so that they will have additional skills and knowledge for when they are released.

DONATE YOUR OLD SMART PHONE TO SWOP BEHIND BARS AND HELP A RECENTLY RELEASED SEX WORKER CONNECT TO THE COMMUNITY!

Imagine for just a second that you didn’t have the ability to connect to the internet of family or friends for even 1 week…No access to phone calls, email, Facebook or Twitter.  You can’t even text anyone!  Can’t imagine life without your smart phone?  Many of the sex workers who are released to our community don’t have the ability to connect with our community because they have the ability to connect to the internet!  We have been testing a program to provide a smart phone and 30-90 days of service to assist with connecting with us and connecting with opportunities for jobs, connecting with family members and other resources that are desperately needed.  We have found an excellent carrier that has the ability to provide unlimited talk, text and web for a reasonable monthly cost that – after the initial supported time with SBB – they can easily afford on their own.  Smart Phones must be unlocked and all data deleted or reset.  Please have any screen repairs done before sending as we are not in a position to repair broken or cracked screens.  We will happily provide you with a tax deductible receipt once we receive your old smart phone.
