About SWP

The Sex Workers Project (SWP) at the Urban Justice Center offers free immigration legal services to sex workers and sex trafficking survivors. Many of our clients are Spanish-speaking and members of LGBTQ communities who have done sex work by choice, because of their circumstances, or because they were coerced. SWP’s legal team are recognized as national experts on the intersection of sex work criminalization and federal immigration law. SWP engages in cutting edge research, outreach, and education that is desperately needed to zealously advocate for the labor and human rights of sex workers and trafficking survivors, particularly for individuals with intersectional lived experiences related to migration, HIV/AIDS, and LGBTQ issues.
