Ensuring Public Participation, Amplified Voice and Safe Spaces for Sex Workers’ Rights Advocacy
8:00 AM – 9:30 AM EDT
Virtual NGO Forum Side Event
The contraction of public spaces, exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic has disparately impacted sex workers worldwide. This side event will highlight the importance of sex workers’ full and meaningful participation and decision-making in public life and will consider laws, policies and practices that either enhance or hinder such participation. The session will also highlight the important role that feminist allies, politicians and donors can play in supporting sex workers’ political engagement and amplifying sex workers’ voices.
Co-hosted by Kingdom of the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Government of New Zealand, Count Me In! Consortium and Global Network of Sex Work Projects (NSWP)
The event will be conducted in English, Russian and French, with simultaneous translation. The event will also have closed captioning in English.
