About Project Weber Renew
I first met Colleen of Project Renew in 2014, she stood up and told the audience that they had worked with 300 women in 10 years and that 99% of them were addicts.
Then in 2015 they outed the name of a street based worker and her location to RI magazine in a interview. They told the magazine that they had connected with this woman before but the woman was not done chasing her drug money and wouldn’t come in for services. Local RI sex workers went down to Project Renew to confront them about stigmatizing and bad mouthing “people involved in the sex industry” and Colleen defended her behavior and claimed it was OK that she outed the women because what she said was true and she only used the woman first name.
Public facts about Project Weber Renew
Stigmatizing sex workers does not build trust with this population, and it creates more barriers for sex workers to access services. While they claim they are per led, all their volunteers label themselves as survivors and not sex workers or former sex workers. This is dishonest and misleading and the false information that got them funded.
People involved with Project Weber Renew
Rescue industry, who just landed a 50k grant to do outraech to RI sex workers. Sadly they dont want to meet any RI sex workers unless the SW is willing to exit and allow them to shame and stigmatzie them.
