Join us in helping to bring International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers to the Region of Peel. The Peel Sex Workers, Allies and Advocates Network (PSWAAN) will host an inaugural event to honour the occasion on December 16th at Chris Gibson Recreation Centre.
The event will introduce attendees to the history of sex work, and explore relevant work that has been done for and by sex workers both in and outside of the Region of Peel. Attendees will explore strategies for becoming better allies and advocates in relation to sex work and harm reduction.
The 6 - hour day will include an illuminating lineup of presentations reflective of diverse perspectives of and in sex work. Highlights include a peer- led presentation on harm reduction strategies, and presentations examining the role of advocacy in policy and harm reduction.
A light lunch and refreshments will be provided. Please inform us of any dietary restrictions upon confirmation of your attendance.
