Do No Harm: A Fresh Perspective on Anti-Human Trafficking Work – Webinar 2 – Sex Workers: Why Anti-Human Trafficking Work is Harmful
30 March @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
About this Event
Human trafficking is an abhorrent crime that we have a collective duty to address. Doing so requires policy changes and investments in services and programs to support survivors and those who are targeted by traffickers. Too often, the policies and investments sought by anti-human trafficking groups end up harming those vulnerable and marginalized groups.
Do No Harm: A Fresh Perspective on Anti-Human Trafficking Work is a webinar series that brings forward voices of frontline workers, survivors, and other experts to help us uncover blind spots and tensions within the anti-human trafficking work. Through it, we will discover new practices that centre the voices and experiences of those most affected by this work.
Webinar 2 – Sex Workers: Why Anti-Human Trafficking Work is Harmful
Tuesday, March 30 – 2:00PM to 3:00PM EST
Speaker: Elene Lam, Founder, Butterfly: Asian and Migrant Sex Workers Support Network
Description: Anti-Human Trafficking work is particularly harmful for sex workers and migrant sex workers. Increased law enforcement raids, criminalization and deportation are only few of the consequences experienced by the sex workers because of the anti-sex work agenda of many anti-human trafficking groups, perceived morality and anti-immigrant sentiments and policies.
