SWAN member since 2011
We are a sex worker-led organization; we have support personnel who work for us, but sex workers are decision makers and staff in Sloboda Prava. Some of us used to be peer educators in JAZAS- a service provider organization in Belgrade, and we were already involved in SWAN activities before we organized ourselves, so it was natural for us to apply for SWAN membership immediately, as we understood the work SWAN does and felt a part of it. As a young organization we are still learning about advocacy and lobbying. We have partnered with JAZAS in documenting human rights abuses, violence and arbitrary arrests and we are planning on partnering with the Lawyer’s Committee on Human Rights to find the best avenues for advocacy for an organization like ours.
