Policy Advocacy and Research
We engage in rigorous evidence-based policy advocacy and research to document and address pressing issues as well as assess the needs of sex workers including people trafficked in the sex trades.
In addition to our experience working with hundreds of sex workers and trafficking clients, we draw on the results of our human rights documentation projects.
SWP supports community partners in organizing efforts that are sex worker led. To support political and social change towards destigmatizing and decriminalizing sex work we engage in policy advocacy at the local, state, federal and international levels. Through research we aim to provide decision-makers with critical information and practical recommendations for addressing issues related to human trafficking and sex work.
