A group of sex workers organizations and sex work support organizations committed to the cause of sex workers had come together to forge a network of sex workers named National Network of Sex workers (NNSW). The primary objective of the network was to articulate the voices of sex workers and let it be heard across the country. Over the years NNSW and its member organizations went through several campaigns / movements to raise their issues both at State and regional levels. The organization was formally registered as All India Network of Sex workers (AINSW).
