SWOP | MPLS Values
our three Minneapolis-specific SWOP values
SWOP MPLS centers Black liberation in our organizational structures, in our community resources + connections, and in our understanding of liberatory movements. Black liberation movements are deeply connected to sex worker organizing movements, often intertwining liberation through bodily autonomy under violent systems of oppression.
SWOP MPLS centers accessibility + inclusivity in our creation of resources, our planning of community spaces, and our commitment to Disability Justice organizationally. Accessibility and inclusivity connect to our actions, which are rooted in justice and equity.
SWOP MPLS centers compassionate integrity in our organizational responsibility, our financial transparency to community, and our personal commitment to restorative practices. Compassionate integrity is represented through micro-level interpersonal connections and on a macro-level with our intrapersonal community coalition + support.
