Right Side Human Rights Defender NGO, in collaboration with the Sex Workers Rights Advocacy Network in Central and Eastern Europe and Central Asia (SWAN), has launched a series of webinars on “Community perspectives and responses to criminalization, violence, discrimination and repression against sex workers in the region.” The first 2 webinars have already been successfully implemented.
During the webinars, transgender sex worker activists learn about their rights and mechanisms for their application, they acquire skills on different platforms to fight for their rights, as well as they learn about the importance of being involved in decision-making processes.
The series of webinars are being conducted by the experts and trainers certified by SWAN, who, based on their own and community experience, pass on their knowledge to Armenian transgender sex worker activists through non-formal education and interactive discussions.
The participants, by completing the series of webinars successfully and mastering the provided information, will be able to use and implement the tools included in the SWIT (Sex Workers Implementation Tool) within the framework of our further activities funded by SWAN.
Right Side Human Rights Defender NGO highly appreciates the cooperation with SWAN and is proud to be a member of the network for two years now by fighting for equal rights for sex workers in Armenia and on international platforms.
