Holloway advocates for sexual health & sex worker justice alongside a cohort of badass Bay Area activists. Utilizing social justice and harm reduction frameworks, she advocates for the health, safety and human rights of sex workers and intersecting communities. Her time at City College San Francisco, shaped how she approaches sexual wellness, and encouraged her to further her work addressing consent culture as she earned certificates in HIV/STI Prevention & Healthy Relationship Education. As Holloway’s community organizing became more political and intersectional, she decided to further her studies, completing her masters degree in public health (MPH) at San Francisco State University. She now presents at local and national public health conferences, policy boards, guest lectures at colleges and universities, and is an active member of Bay Area Worker Support & Public Health Social Justice Collective .
In 2018 Holloway & Arabelle Raphael founded a worker resource organization Bay Area Workers Support (BAWS): a group of Bay Area advocates that work for the health, safety, and livelihoods of sex workers in the wake of FOSTA/SESTA legislation. While our government is busy legislating against us, WE are organizing and redistributing our community resources, skill-sets, knowledge, and power to set up community care systems.
It is our goal to provide sex worker communities:
Support, information & resources
Providing immediate relief/connections for emergency needs
Creating strategic action around sex worker safety, media advocacy, and policy

The Free Speech Coalition (FSC) Public Health Advisory Board will support existing efforts for health and safety in the adult industry. The Board will take a proactive role in shaping and participating in the global discourse regarding sexual and reproductive health. This Board recognizes that the adult industry faces considerable stigma from policymakers and interest groups, and that this stigma is not reflected in the general public’s growing interest in sexual health. The science and public health-based activities of the Board will contribute to the health and safety of workers and community members within the adult industry, as well as the public at large
