Who do you work with?: 
Nuestra organizacion esta dirigida a trabajar por la proteccion de los derechos humanos de la comunidad GLBTI con enfasis en la poblacion tansexual y poblacion transfeminina que ejercen el trabajo sexual, asi como tambien capacitamos y emoderamos a toda la poblacion sobre temas de sensibilizacion para el bienestar de nuestra poblacion historicamente discriminada. Our organization works mainly to protect the human rights of the LGTB community, especially for the trans population and the trans women sex workers, so we build capacities and empower the community about sensitive issues for the welfare of our community that historically has been discriminated.
How are sex workers involved in your organisation?: 
Nosotras como trabajadoras sezuales formamos parte de la directiva de esta asociacion que fue creada con el fin de velar por los derechos de la poblacion trans femenina que ejercen el trabajo sexual, pero tambien incluimos a todas la comunidad GLBTI que es una de las poblaciones mas vulnerades en derechos humanos en nuestro pais. We, as female sex workers, belong to this organization that was created to protect the rights of the trans women sex workers, anyhow, we include all LGBT communities because they are one of the most vulnerable populations of our country.
Which of NSWP priority areas does your organisation work on?: 
Advocate for universal access to health services, including primary health care, HIV and sexual and reproductive health services
Speak out about violence against sex workers, including violence from police, institutions, clients, and intimate partners, while challenging the myth that sex work is inherently gender-based violence
Oppose human rights abuses, including coercive programming, mandatory testing, raids and forced rehabilitation
Advocate for the economic empowerment and social inclusion of sex workers as sex workers
What are the two main challenges that the sex workers you work with face: 
- Visibilizarlas ante una sociedad que nos margina, que nos excluye y nos discrimina por dos razones: por ejercer el trabajo sexual y por tener una orientacion sexual diferente a la del patriarcalismo. - Empoderar a nuestras chicas sobre derechos, impulsar a que luchen por los mismo, a darle cara a esta poblacion que nos margina por ser minorias sexuales, en la cuidad de milagro tenemos muchos retos y mas aun cuando recien en este ano un grupo de companeras trans femeninas se armaron de valor y salieron a las calles a ejercer la labor sexual, hemos luchado contra el acoso, la persecucion y la burla de las autoridades quienes deberian de protegernuestros derechos son los que mas violentan o se hacen los ciegos cuando alguien mas lo hace. - Raise their voices in a society that marginalizes us, excludes us and discriminates us for two reasons; one being sex workers and two, differing from the patriarchate sexual orientation. - Empower our girls about rights and encourage them to fight for them and challenge the society that marginalizes us for being a minority sexually wise. In the city of Milagro, we have a lot of challenges and there is a lot going on this year especially when a group of trans women emboldened themselves and went out on the streets to do sex work, we have fought against harassment, persecution and when the authorities mocked us. Instead of protecting our rights they are the ones who hits us the most and the play blind when they have to protect us.
