Best Practices Policy Project

Mission

The Best Practices Policy Project (BPPP) is dedicated to the advancement of the rights of sex workers, people in the sex trade and related communities in the United States. Everything that we do is guided by principles that protect the rights of people who engage in commercial sex in all its forms.

Purpose

BPPP achieves its mission by promoting best practice policies, supporting movement building, addressing research and academic concerns, and by providing advocates with technical assistance and training. BPPP’s work sits at the intersection of movements for gender and racial equality, labor and human rights, freedom of migration and community empowerment. In regards to human rights, BPPP works intensively on promoting sex workers issues at the United Nations via reporting and advocacy through mechanisms such as the Universal Periodic Review. Across the US, BPPP partners on campaigns and empowers communities to act for rights. In this work, BPPP acts a resource organization working to build leadership across communities. BPPP creates information about key issues via community networks and through our advisory committee, a growing group bringing together the best minds working on sex worker rights with an anti-racism/anti-oppression lens.
