Ugly Mugs

Violence against sex workers is a crime.

Ugly Mugs is a violence prevention program that supports sex workers to share information to maintain their safety.

Ugly Mugs was originally started by the Prostitutes Collective of Victoria (PCV) in St Kilda in 1986 and is a system that has been recreated with success by sex worker communities around the world.
