Project Las Muchachas
Supporting Women “In The Life”
Project Las Muchachas offers support and services to women involved in sex work, many of whom have come to “the life” through sexual trafficking and exploitation.
Sex workers are frequently exposed to unprotected sex and sexual violence, and are at high risk for HIV and STD infections. ELAWC is reaching out to this vulnerable population and discretely offering education and support. Meeting with immigrant women in night clubs, strip clubs, and local bars, our trained outreach specialists offered “Safety and Prevention” gift bags that include vital information on HIV and STD prevention, and they are encouraged to reach out for help via ELAWC hotline numbers.
In addition to directly contacting women in the field, ELAWC is partnering with local organizations working with vulnerable women in recovery, and expanding services to include culturally relevant HIV, STD and violence prevention education and resources. To date, 50 women have attended the HIV101 prevention classes, and 20 have attended “Las Charlas,” safe support groups where can women talk, share struggles, explore options, and find peer support.
And most importantly, women “in the life” are finding the courage to reach out to our hotline, connect with services, and leave abusive situations, putting their lives on new path.
