About Us

In collaboration with and guided by impacted communities, we offer legal advocacy to survivors of human trafficking and people who engage in sex work, regardless of whether they do so by choice, circumstance, or coercion.

We engage in advocacy, education, and organizing to build a movement to protect the human rights of sex workers. We aim to create a world that is safe for all workers and where human trafficking does not exist.

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. All of our services are free to sex workers, those profiled as sex workers, and human trafficking survivors. We share our expertise through legal education workshops for sex workers and trainings for service providers and community organizations. We engage in media advocacy, support sex worker-led organizing and pursue policy change, aiming to make a real and demonstrable impact in the lives of our constituents. And we conduct groundbreaking human rights documentation rooted in the real life experiences of sex workers and survivors of trafficking.

The Sex Workers Project is a remarkably effective, dynamic organization deeply committed to improving the lives of our clients. 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. Together, we are working to create a world that is safe for sex workers and where human trafficking does not exist.

In collaboration with and guided by impacted communities, we offer legal advocacy to survivors of human trafficking and people who engage in sex work, regardless of whether they do so by choice, circumstance, or coercion.
