The 2020 Honorees

 

Cyndee Clay

Cyndee Clay has worked for over 30 years as an advocate for the human rights, safety and health of folks engaged in street economies, especially those working in the sex trade.  She believes that decriminalization of sex work and full sex worker rights are critical to the end of sexual exploitation and exploitative sex trafficking.  She has served as the Executive Director of HIPS (Honoring Individual Power and Strength)  for the past 25 years – striving to center the voices of those most affected by criminalization and stigma. She is a graduate of the UCLA/Johnson & Johnson Health Care Executive Program at UCLA Anderson School of Management, and was a 2019 Advocate-in-Residence for Global Health Studies at Yale’s Jackson Institute for Global Affairs.
