COYOTE is collecting stories to support a bill for immunity for sex workers and sex trafficking survivors reporting violent crimes to police. Surveys are a way that we can bring the voices of criminalized people who would rather remain anonymous to lawmakers. Have you ever been the victim or witness of a work-related violent crime?

In 2022 COYOTE expanded our jail outreach. We are now providing local incarcerated sex workers with a 100 clothing allowance and other resources upon their release.
Announcing COYOTE CLOSET Opening September 2021! Now accepting used or new women’s clothing donations. Contact Shelia at 401–617- 3618 for more information! We are grateful to Amenity Aid who provides us with hygiene items to keep the COYOTE CLOSET up and running.
