ESPLER is a diverse community-based erotic service provider led group which seeks to empower the erotic community and advance sexual privacy rights through legal advocacy, education, and research. In our legal advocacy, we seek to create change through a combination of impact litigation, policy statements, and voicing our concerns for our community in political arenas. Through educational trainings and outreach, we will empower and capacity build to address discrimination of erotic service providers and the greater erotic community. Lastly, we strive to archive and rate much of the research which has been done by and of the sex worker community, and build on this history with research which seeks to be increasingly inclusive, respectful, and ultimately, relevant to the erotic service providers and the larger erotic community.
Erotic Service Providers are those who use their erotic labor to make a living; prostitutes, exotic dancers, phone sex operators, adult film performers, web cam performers, dominatrix-submissives just to name a few. We one of a very few 501 c 3 s serving our much maligned population in the country.
Our main efforts are to educate policy makers about decriminalization and harm reduction. We must raise funds to afford continue our work to speak out to the media, represent and expand our constituency especially in the academic research realm and locate funding to file for our civil rights in state court. This is a virtual volunteer opportunity.
