certaines sont des groupes informels de travailleurSEs du sexe qui existent au sein d’organisations plus larges et d’autres sont des organisations non gouvernementales qui soutiennent les droits des travailleurSEs du sexe. Certaines organisations membres dispensent des services, d’autres se concentrent sur les actions de plaidoyer ou se mobilisent pour tenter d’améliorer les conditions de vie des travailleurSEs du sexe ; toutes combattent les violations des droits des travailleurSEs du sexe qui mettent en danger leur santé et leur bien-être.

La liste de nos membres est accessible sur le site Internet, sur les pages réservées aux régions en cliquant sur le parapluie rouge situé sur la carte.

Remarque : Pour des raisons de sécurité, il n’est pas mentionné sur le site du NSWP quels sont les membres qui sont des organisations dirigées par des travailleurSEs du sexe. Les membres peuvent aussi choisir de ne pas apparaitre sur la partie du site Internet accessible au public.
