survivors of Trafficking & Sex workers seeking justice
We VIMUKTHI (A state-level collective of Survivors of Trafficking & Sex workers) are facing extreme pathetic conditions including our children since the 1st wave of COVID 19. No representation still not recognized us as informal workers in the state of AP and no care and concern took over to save our lives yet. No support services reached out to us. Our quest to enjoy our rights as other unorganized sector workers sowed at the first wave of COVID still remained in vain.
The NHRC’s first advisory during Oct 2020 gone futile without any result-oriented action by the state even after the issue of its Advisory 2.0 in May 2021 for safeguarding the rights of informal workers during the second wave and now it is the wake of the Third Wave of the pandemic. Still, we fight for our rights and our genuine demands in the wake of COVID 19 as we are the survivors seeking justice.
