Managing our own affairs!

The Best Practices Policy Project is now a tax exempt organization and has been operating independently of our former fiscal sponsor since December 17, 2020.

Running our own show has been hard won and we are sharing everything we are learning with our networks so others can do the same if they choose. Donations to the Best Practices Policy Project are tax deductible. Checks can be made out to and mailed to Best Practices Practices Policy Project, Inc at 8 Egbert Hill Rd, Morristown, NJ 07960. Donations can be made online via cc, debit and paypal. If you shop at Amazon (and not saying that you should but *if*) then send us some coins from them when you shop by clicking the button below.

Want to know how to support other organizations working for rights, providing services and organizing at the grassroots? The sector of organizations and activists working for rights very much needs donations no matter how small. Many organizations do outstanding work while receiving almost no support from mainstream funding agencies and your support will make a difference. The Desiree Alliance is currently seeking support. The Outlaw Project is setting up a housing project for transgender women in Arizona. The Black Sex Worker Collective is combining art and activism. New Jersey Red Umbrella Alliance is providing support to the sex workers of New Jersey. The St. James Infirmary provides compassionate and non-judgmental support to sex workers in San Francisco. Donations help keep food on the table for program participants, pays for outreach supplies (like hygiene kits, new socks, hats, gloves, scarves, etc), or help pay for reproductive and medical services for uninsured sex workers in need.

More information about the Best Practices Policy Project… The Best Practices Policy Project (BPPP) is dedicated to supporting organizations and advocates working with sex workers, people in the sex trade and related communities in the United States. We organize, produce materials for policy environments, address research and provide organizations and advocates with technical assistance. We are committed to anti-racism and anti-oppression. Everything that we do is guided by principles that protect the rights of people who engage in sex work in all its forms. BPPP is a member of the US Human Rights Network, the Network of Sex Work Projects and the Association for Women’s Rights in Development.

Donate to Our UN Journey: $1000 goal

WE NEED YOUR TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATIONS to support a sex workers of color-led rights team to the UN. As part of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) sex worker rights advocates have submitted a national report to the United Nations about the violations of our rights over the last five years. The next step is that sex worker rights leaders will travel to Geneva, Switzerland to speak to member countries about the criminalization of our communities. Our UN team will be led by Black transgender women, specifically experienced UN advocate Monica Jones, supporting the advocacy of Black leaders such as N’Jaila Rhee, Jiselle and Akynos who will be traveling to Geneva for the very first time.

When donating please list “UPR” in the “add special instructions” line in order to earmark your donation to support the team, as per the example below. Donated and forgot to type in UPR in the special instructions line? Send us an email and we will make sure to use the money for the team.

Checks can be made out to and mailed to our fiscal sponsor Social and Environmental Entrepreneursat 23532 Calabasas Road, Suite A, Calabasas, CA 91302. Please be sure to write checks payable to SEE and write “Best Practices Policy Project” in the memo line.
