- 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
- 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) - Sex Workers' Rights NOW! No Condoms as Evidence!
- Best practices training and capacity-building for health care providers, law enforcement, social workers, legal service providers, and community members to learn more about sex work and related issues
- And Much More!
More info about our coalitions:
PERSIST Health Project is a New York City-based health organization made up of health educators, social workers, nurse practitioners and advocates, all of whom have either current or former experience in the sex trade or are our committed allies.
The PROS Network (Providers & Resources Offering Services to Sex Workers) works to improve the conditions of people engaging in the sex trade in NYC through strengthening connections between sex workers, their direct service providers, and advocates. We support people of all genders who, by choice, circumstance, or coercion, engage in sexual activities for money, food, shelter, clothing, drugs, or other survival needs.
