On February 9th, 2012, NYATN Steering Committee member Crystal DeBoise of the Sex Workers Project at the Urban Justice Center presented on a distinguished panel titled, “Women, Sex Work, and Trafficking.”  The event was coordinated by the Harvard Women’s Law Association at the Harvard School of Law and The American Constitutional Society.  Along with panelists Siddharth Kara, Leah Foley, Kate Nace Day, and Julie Dahlstrom, DeBoise discussed global and local human trafficking and its relationship to sex work.  DeBoise added the harm reduction and human rights perspective to the panel asserting that all sex work is not trafficking and sex work is a very broad term that encompasses a wide variety of experiences while providing concrete examples of how to effectively fight human trafficking in New York City.
