Sisters of the Streets mission is to foster hope, love, and freedom from domestic sex trafficking and the adult entertainment industry through restorative practices and empowerment through life skills. We believe in utilizing the voice of the individual to create solutions as well as reduce recidivism and provide prevention.
We are a LIVED EXPERIENCE based organization
Our main focus is to create empowerment through encouragement. Sisters of the streets exists to create permanent successful solutions.
Our purpose is being direct advocates for women and young girls who have experienced domestic sexual exploitation as well as a reliable resource which provides tailored assistance where they need it, when they need it. We're committed to raising awareness by educating society of the harsh realities of "the game" and focusing on educating on the importance of all inclusive solutions to this issue.
With emphasis on all three areas of the issue
(The exploited, the buyer and the exploiter)
Overall, the final goal is to not only help support our peers in getting out of the their exploitive situations but to also continuously support them so they're empowered to stay out.
We believe exploitation is not just an issue for those involved in it, it is an epidemic of humanity.
We are Sisters of the Streets and we are created by those that have lived it for those who are living it
