Amara is calling for Congress to pass the Safe Sex Workers Study Act, which would study and analyze whether FOSTA-SESTA ended up putting sex workers at an increased risk nationwide study of the health and safety sex workers! https://t.co/aqgWEcKrBy AmaraLegal photo
We all deserve to know why the Safe Harbor bill (SB0768/HB0833) did not pass in the Maryland General Assembly!

Under federal law, a child cannot consent to sex work. The federal human trafficking definition states that anyone under 18 is a sex trafficking survivor if they engaged in a sex act in exchange for money, period. There is no requirement for force, fraud, or coercion.

Last month, we accepted the resignation of our Executive Director, Llamilet Gutierrez. Llamilet has been a champion for Amara for the last few years, leading our organization through a period of growth and improvements. We are truly grateful for her service and drive to make an impact.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be looking for a demonstrated and dynamic leader to take on the executive director role come February. The ideal candidate should be passionate about social justice and committed to fostering a positive and inclusive culture among colleagues that reflect Amara’s commitment to diversity and racial equity.

You can find the full job description via the link in our bio.

Just a few weeks ago, a 24-year-old mother was arrested for leaving her children alone while she worked, inspiring spirited internet discussion. Why does our legal system punish struggling families for being low income? How will jail or the money spent on a court case help this mother and her children? Let’s move this conversation to our local representatives so we can make policy changes that better support children and families.

Amara welcomes Sarah Zalonis to the Board of Directors. Sarah is committed to addressing #injustices around women's rights, #sextrafficking, #indigenous rights, politics, and first-person narrative.

“It’s not enough for trafficking survivors to merely survive the horrific experience of exploitation but there has to be a justice component otherwise it is not freedom at all.”

Amara welcomes fall intern Mamatha Aahlad. Mamatha’s goal is to learn about the different resources available to #victims, how to provide those #services to those who need them, and #advocate for #survivors of #sextrafficking. "During my freshman year of college, I was told about an organization, Amara Legal, that helped #survivors of sex trafficking. Two years later, I applied for a position with Amara with the intent to explore my interest in legal #advocacy and policy research within the #humantrafficking sphere. Interning with Amara allows me to build on my knowledge obtained about victim rights in the #justice system and the flexibility to apply my research skills."

Shoutout to Sidney, our Virginia-based lawyer. She’s been putting in work during her time at Amara. In the last year, she has co-led the Virginia Coalition Against Human Trafficking (VCAHT), meeting with over a dozen legislators to educate them about the importance of post-conviction remedies, specifically vacatur and expungement for survivors of human trafficking. She is currently monitoring the Virginia State Crime Commission in hopes of having them issue a favorable report on the need for comprehensive criminal record relief for survivors.

Black History Month always highlights Black individuals whose achievements are inspiring, but sometimes those achievements can feel unrealistic for the rest of us. Remember that no matter what life throws at you, this moment is not the final declaration.

Poet and activist, Maya Angelou was an iconic writer and one of the most memorable poets in history. As an adult, she was very vocal about the sexual abuse she experienced in her youth and the years she spent not speaking as a result. When she spoke out about her abuse in her writing, some places banned her work. Nevertheless, she persisted. Maya Angelou refused to be silenced or censored. She is just one example of the endless possibilities for survivors and the epitome of #BlackGirlMagic
