Emerge exists to offer hope to women working in the adult entertainment industry. Each month the Emerge team visits ladies in South Jersey strip clubs and provides free Dignity Bags and resources without judgment or agenda. Emerge does not attempt to persuade women to leave the legal sex industry but rather extend dignity and provide a network of resources when requested.
Emerge Ladies launched on Mother's Day 2012 to extend dignity and offer free resources to ladies working in strip clubs. Statistics reveal that those working in the sex industry struggle with PTSD, addictions, and abuse at higher percentages than women in other community sectors. The Emerge team has been serving as a support system and helping those who request help. Emerge reminds women of their worth regardless of their circumstances and helps them find hope and healing.
