Women With A Vision

Women with a Vision (WWAV) seeks to promote wellness and disease prevention for women and their families living at or below the poverty line through health promotion, advocacy, and community based research. WWAV is a harm reduction organization that has, in response to the rapidly changing political context in New Orleans, adopted a focus on women who are impacted by street economies, the sex trade, who are or were formerly engaged in sex work, or who are homeless or street-based. With Third Wave’s support, WWAV will increase the engagement of young people in their NO Justice Project, which challenges the criminalization of sex work under the Louisiana Statute 14:89, the Solicitation of a Crime Against Nature (SCAN) statute. This statute is currently being challenged in federal courts.
