Amara is the only organization in the D.C. area dedicated solely to serving the legal needs of survivors of sex trafficking and to sex workers.
Amara fights tirelessly for the dignity of our clients.
We partner with local organizations by giving and receiving referrals
to ensure that each client has access to both legal and social services.
What our clients say
"Amara has been amazing. They were so pleasant, compassionate, and helpful. They were always patient and supportive of what I wanted to do, not just wanting to reduce their paperwork."
"If your legal situations are not taken care of, it’s hard to go forward. They took care of my name change and my criminal record. The trafficker won’t find me when he gets out of jail."
"I feel safer. When I think about my life as a whole, I got a new start. My life is completely changed. Things I didn’t ever think would happen. I wouldn’t have been able to work with children. I have hope. I know how far I can go."
