Our History

The Association of sex workers Sarita Colonia (Asociación de Mujeres Trabajadoras Sexuales Sarita Colonia) was consolidated as an autonomous non-profit entity on 2nd of June of 2008. For some time we were seeing the need to be united, working for our people because we were constantly mistreated by the police and discriminated by society. Our goal is to work for the well-being of sex workers women and therefore we intend to work on issues such as politics, human rights, sexual and reproductive health, among others issues that concern us women as subjects of law. Throughout these years, our work has been recognized in the region for our achievements and our participation in decision-making spaces.
