The Cook County Human Trafficking Task Force will host an event about the study "Surviving the Streets of New York: Experiences of LGBTQ Youth Engaged in Survival Sex" with senior research associate Meredith Dank from the Urban Institute.
The event will take place Tuesday, June 7, 1-4 p.m. at Fourth Presbyterian Church, 126 E. Chestnut Ave., in the Borwell Dining Room.
Based on interviews with 283 youth in New York City, this is the first study to focus on LGBTQ youth; young men who have sex with men ( YMSM ); and young women who have sex with women ( YWSW ) who get involved in the commercial sex market in order to meet basic survival needs, such as food or shelter.
