Sex Work

Sex Work is Work

Often referred to as “the world’s oldest profession,” sex work has been a controversial and misunderstood trade throughout human history. Sex workers face various forms of discrimination and life-threatening danger, compounded by the fact that many types of sex work remain criminalized in many countries. Without laws protecting their well-being, sex workers can become the victims of violence, abuse, hate crimes, and trafficking.

Supporting sex workers starts with embracing the reality in which these individuals live. We must be willing to question our assumptions, let go of our judgments, and learn the facts about sex work. Read more in our blog, Sex Work 101.
