Survivors Against SESTA is a coalition of current and former sex workers, people who have experienced exploitation and trafficking, dancers, hustlers, allies, partners, family members and community members. For many of us, the sex trade, and online work in particular, have been central to that survival. We are committed to ending trafficking in the sex trade, and fight for solutions which address the vulnerability which fosters exploitation. Many of us know the weight of having to trade sex in experiences which challenge notions of consent. While our experiences vary, our message is the same: Instead of alleviating the circumstances which make people vulnerable to trafficking, closing online platforms which those in the sex trade use to stay safe compromises our survival, exposes people trading sex to more violence, isolation, HIV/STI transmission and promotes the stigma.
