Together with Thailand’s recent medical cannabis revolution; sex workers are petitioning the government to recognize their right to work legally. This is a step in the right direction and Thailand seems to be making all the right moves. Lets hope this movement gains traction and gives the working girls of Thailand the protection they need. Hats off to the Thai people if they can pull this one off. They truly are proving to be a far sighted lot. ❤
Empower Foundation is a Thai sex worker organization promoting opportunities and rights for sex workers for more than 30 years. Over 50,000 sex workers have been part of Empower in the last three decades. Currently we have a Centre in Chiang Mai with a local community of around 3,000 sex workers and a Museum in Nontaburi.
In addition we have sex worker members in many other provinces who we can call our network. In 30 years we have had many activities, currently we have three main projects. Can Do Bar, Education and our Legal Club.
