Organizations for Providers
As a provider, you may feel alone in this line of work. Especially if you get hurt or injured. Please be aware that there are organizations that are here to help us! These are organizations are dedicated to helping victims of human trafficking, abuse victims, etc. I hope this list is beneficial for all of you.
SEX WORKERS PROJECT
"The Sex Workers Project provides client-centered legal and social services to individuals who engage in sex work, regardless of whether they do so by choice, circumstance, or coercion."
GLOBAL NETWORK OF SEX WORK PROJECTS
"NSWP’s work is based on three core values:
- Acceptance of sex work as work.
- Opposition to all forms of criminalisation and other legal oppression of sex work.
- Supporting self-organisation and self-determination of sex workers."
FREEDOM NETWORK USA
"When you adopt a global perspective, considering the push and pull factors that lead to trafficking. Widening your lens and considering all parts of the problem to work with survivors to find a solution.
"LawHelp helps people of low and moderate incomes find free legal aid programs in their communities, answers to questions about their legal rights and forms to help them with their legal problems."
