Empower Foundation

Empower Foundation is a sex worker organization promoting rights and opportunities for sex workers in Thailand regardless of their country of origin. Sex workers in Thailand face wide spread human rights abuses by both State and non-state actors. These abuses include labor exploitation, extortion and denial of protection under the law. Migrant sex workers have no access to legal documentation in Thailand so are doubly criminalized and stigmatized. They face arbitrary arrest detention and deportation. These injustices mean sex workers cannot assert basic human rights such as access to justice, education; health care and safe fair working conditions.
