Through the lens of lived experiences, the Red Umbrella Project (RedUP) reframes public dialogue surrounding the stigma and discrimination of individuals in the sex trade. RedUP takes a three-pronged approach: 1) media/advocacy training to help sex trade workers challenge discrimination; 2) communication and transferable job skills to help people exit the sex trade industry; and 3) community organizing and advocacy to achieve social and political change.
