Expect lively performances and a dance floor filled with music sure to enliven your spirits and get your feet a-moving!

+++ ABOUT OUR BENEFICIARIES +++

Persist Health Project is a peer-led health organization in New York City, which links sex workers, trafficking survivors and anyone who has traded sex for money, food, drugs, or other resources with nonjudgmental health services. We believe that when we take control of our health and wellness together through peer education and community health care, it is an act of empowerment and a tool for positive change.

PROS Network works to improve the conditions of people engaging in the sex trade in NYC through strengthening connections between sex workers, their direct service providers, and advocates. We support people of all genders who, by choice, circumstance, or coercion, engage in sexual activities for money, food, shelter, clothing, drugs, or other survival needs. Grounded in principles of social justice and human rights, the PROS Network embraces a non-judgmental, harm reduction approach.
