Sex work focus for Persist Health Project
Sex worker demographics focus for Persist Health Project
Persist is a peer-led, community-based project based on Brooklyn, New York. We provide health and support services, as well as community organizing and leadership opportunities for people in the NYC sex trade. We are by and for sex workers, trafficking survivors, and anyone who has traded sex for money, food, drugs, or other resources.
We believe in bridging the gaps in health and social services for people like us by fighting coercion and violence against people in the sex trade, while building better spaces to get safe, affirming, and affordable health and social services.
We are a membership-based organization; our campaigns and advocacy work are guided by the desires and vision of our membership.
