You can now report sexual assault online & anonymously to NSW Police on their website
WELCOME to the online home of NAUWU!
This campaign website was initiated by a dedicated group of New South Wales (NSW) sex workers in October 2009.
Our campaign is designed to address the emerging issues related to the NSW sex industry, especially the lack of consultation at all levels of government, with sex workers and peer sex worker organisations.
Sex workers must be consulted and be included in EVERY meeting, panel, taskforce and roundtable that is formed to discuss the sex industry. No implementation policy, procedure, legal reform or directive should occur without detailed and in depth consultation with sex workers at all stages.
Things are changing without sex workers being involved
Things are changing without sex workers knowing what’s happening
Sex workers are the experts on sex work so must be consulted
Sex workers must not be left in the dark….
NOTHING ABOUT US WITHOUT US!
NOTE: the term Nothing About Us Without Us has been utlisied around the world in numerous forums, community groups, campaigns, organisations and movements. This includes such sectors as: the disability rights movement (1, 2, 3), youth-led health promotion initiatives (4), mental health (5), drug users (6, 7), sex workers (8, 9, 10), The Institute for Inclusive Security (which includes The Women Waging Peace Network) (11), and even Anglicare Tasmania (12)
The rationale for using this common mantra is the need for INCLUSIVENESS.
As the definition held within Wikipedia states “Nothing About Us Without Us! is… used to communicate the idea that no policy should be decided by an essay writers from writing services; representative without the full and direct participation of members of the group(s) affected by that policy. This involves ethic, ability-based or other groups that are often thought to be marginalised from political, social and economic opportunities” (13).
