Our organization works with women, trans people, sex workers and partners of sw with the goal of creating prevention and attention strategies that are appropriate for each one of these. in a coordinated way, since we are a population vulnerable to things like physical assault and rape etc.
How are sex workers involved in your organisation?: 
Las trabajadoras sexuales están involucradas en la Asociación tanto de manera representativa (toda la directiva está conformada por PERTS ) en los cargos dentro del directorio como a nivel de población de base a la cual damos como estrategias talleres de capacitación, formación, y liderazgo en temas de Prevención y sensibilización en VIH-Sida así como también en Derechos Humanos y Violencia de Genero. Sex workers are involved in the Association both in a representative manner (the entire board is made up of SWs) through positions in the directorate as well as at a grassroots level, to which we provide strategies [such as] skill-building, training, and leadership workshops on issues such as VIH-AIDS prevention and education as well as human rights and gender-based violence.
Which of NSWP priority areas does your organisation work on?: 
Oppose the criminalisation and other legal oppression of sex work and support its recognition as work
Critique the trafficking paradigm that conflates representations of sex work, migration, and mobility
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
Challenge stigma and discrimination against sex workers, their families and partners, and others involved in sex work
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: 
Uno de los principales retos es que no nos reconozcan como lo que somos trabajadoras sexuales esto nos vulnera mucho ya que nos niegan nuestros derechos a trabajar libremente en las calles y en otros espacios donde ejercemos el trabajo sexual, también el hostigamiento por parte de los miembros de seguridad que nos violentan y nos agreden y otros entes abolicionistas que deslegitiman nuestro discurso Female sex workers are involved in the Association both in a representative manner (the entire board is made up of SWs) through positions in the directorate as well as at a grassroots level, to which we provide strategies [such as] skill-building, training, and leadership workshops on issues such as VIH-AIDS prevention and education as well as human rights and gender-based violence.
