Who do you work with?: 
Stella’s goals are: • to provide support and information to sex-workers so that they may live in safety and with dignity; • to sensitiae and educate the public about sex work and the realities faced by sex workers; • to fight discrimination against sex workers; • to promote the decriminalisation of sex work.
Describe other areas of your work: 
Stella favours empowerment and solidarity by and amongst sex workers, since we are committed to the idea that each of us has a place in society, and human rights worth defending. Not only do we run a drop-in centre reserved for sex-workers, but we also produce Bad Tricks and Assaulters Lists included into our monthly Bulletin, a bi-yearly magazine called ConStellation, and a growing stock of other useful tools. However, most of our contacts with street-level sex-workers, escorts, masseuses and dancers are made through our street-work.
