Young Women's Empowerment Project is a member based social justice organizing project for girls and transgender girls involved in the sex trade and street economy. Using harm reduction, popular education, transformative justice and healing values we work to organize young people across Chicago who are street based, homeless or homefree.
This will be a two hour workshop that will connect the dots between our youth lead participatory action research study to our current campaign work. We will talk about challenges and strategies for organizing street based youth, our campaign to change the way Chicago sees its Homeless Homefree and street based youth and we will share tools we have developed to track institutional violence in our communities.
People will leave with new concepts about the sex trade and street economy, tools to organize young people in their community and inspiration!
