Who do you work with?:

How are sex workers involved in your organisation?: 
Опираемся на наших партнеров в регионах – кто работает с нашей целевой группой – приглашаем на треннинги и др. ; распространяем информационные материалы и газету «Лилит»; проводим акции; обеспечиваем работу сайта; оказываем техническую и материальную помощь группам активисток; выезжаем в регионы; проводим тренинги для лидеров. Through our partners in other regions (organizations which work with our target group) we are inviting sex workers to participate in our trainings; we are disseminating information materials and “Lilit” newspaper; we organize actions and maintain the web site; we provide technical and material support to groups of activists; we travel to other regions and train leaders.
Which of NSWP priority areas does your organisation work on?:

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
