Organization for Prostitution Survivors

Peter Qualliotine is co-founder of the Seattle-based Organization for Prostitution Survivors (OPS) and directs Men’s Accountability programming there. He began working to engage men and boys in ending Commercial Sexual Exploitation (CSE) more than two decades ago. In 1995 he created one of the first education programs in the country for buyers of commercial sex. Presently, with OPS, he runs “Stopping Sexual Exploitation: a Program for Men”, a ten-week transformative justice program for court and self-referred sex buyers based on principles of social justice and personal transformation. Peter also co-coordinates “Buyer Beware: a Partnership to End Commercial Sexual Exploitation” with the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office in King County, Washington. “Buyer Beware” brings together partners from multiple sectors to facilitate a coordinated response to sexual exploitation.
