(b) To lobby for legal and administrative frameworks which do not discriminate against sex workers;

(c) To challenge any government at any time when and where it implements legislation, regulations, rules, policies or law enforcement practices which are discriminatory and/or repressive to the rights and autonomy of sex workers;
