Empower Foundation is a sex workers collective in Thailand which for 30 years has been promoting rights and opportunities for sex workers, especially access to education, health and legal advocacy. Over the years 50,000 sex workers have passed through including migrant women from Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam.

This is a unique opportunity to hear directly from sex workers as well as from grassroots women in the Global South who are organizing for survival across different sectors of society.

The English Collective of Prostitutes is a UK based group, founded in 1975, which helps sex workers defend themselves against unjust charges and spearheads campaigns for decriminalization, safety, and for resources so that sex workers can leave sex work if and when they want.

US PROStitutes Collective is a Bay Area based organization, founded in 1982, which won parity for sex workers in compensation claims and with others got policies establishing immunity from arrest for sex workers reporting violence.

Sponsored by Global Women's Strike/Bay Area, GWS Oni Collective, In Defense of Prostitute Women's Safety Project, US PROStitutes Collective and Women of Color/GWS.
