The Sex Workers Project provides client-centered legal and social services to individuals who engage in sex work, regardless of whether they do so by choice, circumstance, or coercion. One of the first programs in the nation to assist survivors of human trafficking, the Sex Workers Project has pioneered an approach to service grounded in human rights, harm reduction and in the real life experiences of our clients. Our professional service providers are multi-lingual, non-judgmental and bring more than ten years of experience.
As the only US organization meeting the needs of both sex workers and trafficking victims, the Sex Workers Project serves a marginalized community that few others reach. We engage in policy and media advocacy, community education and human rights documentation, working to create a world that is safe for sex workers and where human trafficking does not exist.
Big changes are happening at the Sex Workers Project.
The Urban Justice Center moved to a beautiful new space on September 26! Our new location is:
40 Rector Street, 9th Floor, New York, NY 10006.
Our phone numbers and email addresses will stay the same.
And thanks to your support - we have hired incredible new team members to help us meet the needs of sex workers and survivors of trafficking in New York City. By mid-October, our staff will grow to include:
Kate D'Adamo, who will be our National Policy Advocate, researching and advocating for sex workers across the US, especially on the issue of criminalization of HIV.
Jillian Hernandez, who will provide legal services to our clients through a Social Justice Initiatives Fellowship from Columbia Law School.
Caro Rodriguez-Fucci, who will be our new bilingual Counselor/Advocate informed by his roots in anti-oppression work within social justice communities.
