The project aims at raisiing awareness on the violence, crimes and discrimination against sex workers, a marginalized female group and mobilizes public opinion and stakeholders in order to tackle these phenomena.
Target groups are sex workers, public opinion, policy makers, law enforcement, social professionals working with sex workers. The main activities of the project include the involvement of sex worker activists; data collection, analysis and visualization; compiling a report, a video campaign, activities on the International day to end violence against sex workers (17 December); cooperation with police and legal aid. As a result, a database is being built that can be sustained by community resources and highlights the volume and nature of violence against sex workers. The data is to be presented to the public and stakeholders, e.g. law enforcement by a campaign. Sex worker activists were involved in data collection, peer outreach to their fellow sex workers. Pilot cooperation was also be built with the police.
