Miembros

Los miembros de la NSWP son organizaciones y redes locales, nacionales o regionales, de personas que ejercen trabajo sexual ubicadas en cinco regiones: África, Asia y el Pacífico, Europa, América Latina y Norteamérica y el Caribe. Los miembros  en cada región eligen dos representantes a la Junta de Directores de la NSWP.

Es requisito para todas las organizaciones miembros suscribir los valores fundamentales de la NSWP así como la Declaración de Consenso sobre Trabajo Sexual, Derechos Humanos y la Ley. Sólo las organizaciones y redes lideradas por PERTS tienen derecho a voto.

Los miembros de la NSWP provienen de diversas culturas y tienen diferentes experiencias e historias organizacionales. La mayoría son organizaciones independientes lideradas por PERTS, algunas son grupos informales de PERTS dentro de organizaciones más grandes, y algunas son ONGs que promueven los derechos de las PERTS. Algunas organizaciones miembros proveen servicios, otras se enfocan en abogacía, otras más en movilizarse para reducir la vulnerabilidad; todas trabajan temáticas de derechos humanos que repercuten en la salud y el bienestar de las PERTS.

Usted puede encontrar a nuestros miembros buscando en las páginas regionales o haciendo click en los paraguas rojos sobre el mapa.

Nota: Por razones de seguridad como de protección, la NSWP no identifica qué miembros son organizaciones lideradas por PERTS en nuestro sitio web, y algunos de nuestros miembros pueden haber escogido no aparecer públicamente en él.
