DSW Mutual Aid Fund

Donation protected
A Network of Sex Workers to Excite Revolution (ANSWER) will be sunsetting this project as it has been operating. We will stop collecting funds at the end on November. Any funds collected from this point on will be put towards ANSWER's general operations and the implementation of a new outreach program that is designed to better serve the Detroit sex worker community. 

The Detroit Sex Worker Mutual Aid Fund served a very important role during a critical time, and we are proud to have been able to facilitate the dispersal of your generous donations to people who truly needed it. We want to thank each and every person who donated over the course of this campaign. Because of your generosity and kindness we were able to provide assistance to over 120 sex workers, which is amazing! We couldn't have done it without you!

The following is the description as it stood before this update (without application info): 

The Detroit Sex Worker Mutual Aid Fund is a financial resource-sharing space created by Michigan-based sex workers to provide necessary support for fellow sex workers and their families. Sex workers who are based in Michigan or whose hustle is Michigan-centric in any way are invited to access the fund. Originally serving the Detroit area, we opened up the fund to the state of Michigan after the COVID19 crisis began.

A project of A Network of Sex Workers to Excite Revolution Detroit (ANSWER Detroit), DSWMA disburses emergency relief micro grants to struggling sex workers. Grant amounts range from $50-$200, are distributed through Cash App, Venmo,  Paypal, or cash delivery (depending on location). 


> Priority goes to queer, trans, black, indigenous, workers of color & workers of varying ability.
> Priority goes to sex workers who are street-based, dancers from temporarily closed clubs and in-person sex workers.
> Sex workers with families & sex workers who use substances are encouraged to apply. 
> Grants start at $50 and go up to $200. White cis sex workers are currently capped at $50.

Brief Update: 
Over the course of the month of June, the Detroit Sex Workers' Mutual Aid Fund had to find a new fiduciary relationship. This was largely due to the incredible (but unexpected) success of this fundraiser. We were not ready to be so blessed with your generosity! In the name of transparency, it should be known that for a few weeks, funds were being withdrawn by one of our trusted core team members, and were being distributed from their account. This was not a sustainable option, as we would not want to put any of our members in a strange financial situation, so we put a pause on granting requests for a couple weeks in mid-June in order to establish a new fiduciary relationship. We are happy to announce that that particular saga is over, and we are now able to grant requests again.
