Established in 1975, the English Collective of Prostitutes (ECP) is a self-help organisation of sex workers. They campaign for the decriminalisation of prostitution, for sex workers’ rights and safety, and for resources to enable people to get out of prostitution if they want to. We are honoured to hold their archive documenting their numerous campaigns, activities and continuing work to the present day. Read more about the ECP's Archive
