Chicago Gets New PROS Network


libbyThis past Wednesday, May 8, 2013, Chicago’s DePaul University celebrated the launch of the Professionals and Resources Offering Services to sex workers Network, commonly referred to as PROS Network.

As Medill reported, “The Network was created by the Sex Workers Outreach Project of Chicago, and was inspired by the first PROS Network in New York City. The coalition is made up of medical, mental health and legal professionals who have signed an agreement to offer client-centered care to those in the sex trade.”

There are 35 providers currently part of the network, with plans for more.

Serpent Libertine (aka Sex Kitten‘s own Libertine aka Libby) was interviewed in the Medill article:

“As a longtime sex worker in Chicago, I just saw that there were so many needs,” said Serpent Libertine, a board member of SWOP-Chicago.

“A lot of people need a lawyer, need a therapist that is sex worker-friendly, need to know where to get tested or a doctor that they can be open with about being a sex worker and not feeling that they are being judged or that they need to be rescued,” Libertine said.
