Mission Statement

The Cupcake Girls provides confidential support to those involved in the sex industry, as well as trauma-informed outreach, advocacy, holistic resources, and referral services to provide prevention and aftercare to those affected by sex trafficking. We provide nonjudgmental support to empower our clients in their pursuits through respect, resources, and relationships.

Description

Why is an organization that specializes in supporting sex workers, and connecting them to community resources, named after a baked good? Our name grew its roots when we began visiting clubs in Las Vegas toting a box of pink cupcakes. These pastries were an icebreaker and conversation starter when offered to entertainers. After being repeatedly referenced as "The Cupcake Girls" during a club visit, we adopted it as our organization’s formal name. Cupcakes continue to be a symbol for our organization, and they consistently have a presence during club and brothel visits, adult industry events, as well as at each of our fundraisers.

At The Cupcake Girls, our team strives to serve and support an often-stigmatized population, and we are always seeking experienced, self-motivated, and highly organized individuals to join our team. The Cupcake Girls values marginalized voices and is committed to creating a work environment that centers the voices and experiences of the communities we serve. As such, we encourage applicants with experience in the adult industry and survivors of trafficking as well as individuals from diverse backgrounds, including BIPOC, LGBTQIA++, veterans, and gender non-conforming applicants.

As a Las Vegas local I love volunteering my time to a non profit that truly is working to better our community. Through giving loving, non judgmental help to adult entertainers and sex workers in Nevada, The Cupcake Girls are making a deep and meaningful impact. I have donated my time and have genuine felt that I made a difference and filled need. The sex industry is a major part of Las Vegas, and the people that work in it often times have nowhere to turn for community and understanding and most importantly, resources. The Cupcake Girls offer respect, resources, and relationships and it all begins with a cupcake!
