Social Justice for Individuals Involved in Sex Trade
Speaker – Madeline Stenersen, PhD
Abstract: Current systemic challenges faced by individuals involved in sex trade are vast and interconnected. Whether one is a sex worker or a survivor of sex trafficking, dehumanization and marginalization of individuals involved in sex trade has led to high rates of discrimination, abuse, and violence against this population from a multitude of sources. Dr. Madeline Stenersen is a postdoctoral fellow in the Division of Prevention and Community Research at Yale and focuses on improving community- and system-level responses to sex trade in the United States and abroad. This presentation will first present the current state of sex trade in the United States and the challenges faced by individuals involved in sex trade. Additional discussion will focus on the ways in which community members, researchers, and clinicians can aid in promoting wellbeing and preventing violence against individuals involved in sex trade. Finally, participants will be provided with an informational handout with further reading and resources on this topic.
