Welcome to WILLIAMS VS. USA - Opposing online censorship and SESTA/FOSTA

MORE ABOUT THE LAWSUIT

SUPPORT US

We filed this complaint on 9/7/18 using a fee waiver.  I'm disabled and therefore can't afford the court costs on our income.  Those who belong to SWA who are now on their feet financially, are not asked to contribute to "outside issues".  If you would like to help us create a fund that will allow us to pay the court fees and move this case forward, you're welcome to contribute using www.zellepay.com with the email of msjodywilliams@gmail.com  You'll receive a receipt from our 501c3 nonprofit for your contribution.   Supporting us is supporting your own rights to free speech, the right to follow the religion of your choice, and also the right to choose the treatment of your choice for what ails you.   It also helps fight the hold sex traffickers have on the internet now thanks to SESTA/FOSTA.   If you prefer to make an "anonymous" contribution, you can send cash or a money order to our address on Boulder Highway.  

HATE TRUMP?

I think we all can think of reasons why Trump would want the voices of sex workers silenced.  He personally signed this into law.  If you want to give him a piece of your mind that you oppose SESTA/FOSTA, then please support our lawsuit, and let him know how you feel.  Write him a letter.  Send us your letter and we'll publish it.  Are you a reporter or writer?  Write about our cause and let him know how you feel about this law.

About Us

WHO WE ARE

Jody Williams is not only the plaintiff in this case, but she's also the founder of Sex Workers Anonymous (formerly Prostitutes Anonymous).  This program and hotline were the first ever created to provide services to people in the sex industry who could not call the authorities for assistance.  You can read more about the program at www.sexworkersanonymous.net.  SWA was launched in 1987 - so we've been doing what we do for 30 years now.  Jody herself has personally answered over 500,000 calls on the hotline.  If you add in the people she's talked to during outreach, meetings, by mail - no one in this country has more experience in the issue of exiting the sex industry, as well as sex trafficking, then her.   Jody is not against the sex industry itself, but is against anyone being forced  to do anything.

WHY ARE WE SUING THE USA?

When FOSTA passed, which created online censorship,  what happened to us online was equivalent to if in the fight on opiate addiction that suddenly Narcotics Anonymous were to find they had all their social media blocked   online.  This forced us to file a lawsuit in order to oppose online censorship.  That's what happened to us - suddenly our url, our social media, even Jody's personal blogs, were suddenly blocked by Google, Amazon, Facebook, etc.  In order to protect our members' anonymity, Jody is the only person who will be named as the plaintiff.  No other program offers what we offer so we have no choice but to sue.  We tried for months before filing to "meet and confer", but none of the parties would talk to us about the problems we were experiencing.

HOW THIS AFFECTS YOU

A  12-Step program is not illegal.  Part of our very program is to "carry the message of recovery" to others.  By finding ourselves suddenly shut down as we were - we were not only put out of business instantly, but we were also blocked from exercising our program of recovery.   This is no different than if a church or other religious program where to find themselves just blocked online.  By blocking us, they're' actually aiding sex traffickers to enslave people by preventing them from finding resources they can't get from law enforcement.  This is allowing censorship, restriction on one's religious, as well as on the treatment one chooses for themselves, and strengthens sex traffickers, i.e., crime.
