We are here to educate sex workers about safe sex practices and the prevention of HIV and other STIs. To lobby for legal and administrative frameworks that do not discriminate against sex workers and former sex workers.

To address the special needs of workers from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds so they can have easy access to services such as access to resources.

To eradicate sex worker stereotypes in the popular consciousness and replace myths with the truth about sex workers and our experiences.

To provide information about how to obtain access to a range of health and community services that are appropriately sensitive to the needs of sex workers.
