Amara Legal Center

The Amara Legal Center provides free legal services to individuals whose rights have been violated through commercial sex. Amara recognizes that while there are many different paths that lead a person into commercial sex, many individuals face a common set of legal issues. Amara serves survivors of sex trafficking and any other individual harmed by commercial sex in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. We are committed to raising public awareness of the legal issues facing our clients, to connecting our clients with other vital social services, and to fighting tirelessly to provide excellent legal representation to all of our clients.

On Monday, the United Nations met in New York and covered a broad range of international issues, including sexual abuse. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres founded the group of 57 countries within the UN to prevent exploitation earlier this year, and on Monday he announced that 75 countries have signed a separate compact restating their commitment. In addition, the UN introduced the first rights advocate for victims, Jane Connors from Australia. Amara Legal Center is proud that the UN took these steps and hopes they continue to fight sexual exploitation world wide! http://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/politics-government/national-politics/article173976381.html

Call to action! Please take a moment to read this issue brief and send an email to DC policy makers about the Homeless Services Reform Act, currently being considered by DC Council. This bill has the potential to negatively impact our homeless and housing insecure clients.

Amara Legal Center is proud to announce that this semester we have some amazing interns and we want to highlight all the good work they do! The first intern we'd like to show off is Avantika Shenoy (she/her/hers), a senior at American University. Avantika comes from Bangalore, India and has worked on anti-trafficking laws around the globe. She has studied in both the States and Denmark, interned for an International Development organization, and last summer she spent working in Nepal, in the Legal Section of Maiti Nepal, which is a nonprofit dedicated to serving survivors of trafficking. Here at Amara, Avantika wants to broaden her understanding of sex work and sex trafficking in DC. (As well as exploring all the food trucks and Eastern Market!)
