We are holding a benefit to raise funds in order to:
  • Expand access to care for sex workers by laying the foundation to open up NYC’s first health clinic run by and for sex workers
  • Promote advocacy and policy change to decriminalize sex work and prostitution in NY state, and to remove criminal penalties from all consensual sexual behavior (such as racial profiling, immigration laws, and public space)
  • Conduct best practices training and capacity-building for health care providers, law enforcement, social workers, legal service providers, and community members
  • And Much More!
