Pivot works in partnership with communities affected by poverty and social exclusion to identify priorities and develop solutions to complex human rights issues. Our work is focused in four policy areas: ending homelessness, drug policy reform, sex workers’ rights, and police accountability.
Amid overlapping public health emergencies, Pivot’s legal advocacy objectives in the areas of homelessness, drug policy, sex workers’ rights, and criminalization and policing has become ever more pressing and urgent – and we remain steadfast in our commitment to fight for the health and human rights of people who contend with the daily reality of poverty and social exclusion.
