Adult Industry Outreach

Emerge Ladies

Who we are

NJ non-profit forDignity launched a unique outreach on Mother's Day 2012 titled Emerge to share the unconditional love and hope of Christ with women working in the adult entertainment industry.  

What we do

Once a month the Emerge teams visit strip clubs in Philadelphia and South Jersey and give gift bags and resources to the ladies free of charge.  Due to the complex challenges many women in the adult entertainment industry may face, Emerge serves as an advocate for those seeking help. 

Why we visit strip clubs

The Emerge outreach began with a simple idea of extending kindness and  dignity to ladies working in the adult entertainment industry with a goal to empower women and shatter mindsets. According to studies, women in the sex industry often struggle with addictions, abuse, and PTSD at a higher rate than ladies in other sectors. The Emerge teams seek to offer hope and viable options for those who are struggling. The goal is to empower women to fulfill their destiny not to interfere or push an agenda. 

"You will never find a higher concentration of women who need help" - Anthony Pepe, Strip Club Security & Management
