END CRIMINALIZATION OF SEX WORK

Sex Workers Launch Constitutional Court Challenge to Fight against Criminal Laws

Oct 3 Rally (Banner)-2.png

Sex workers are going back to court to fight against criminal laws that harm us. We will rally at Ontario Superior Court (330 University Ave.) on Monday, October 3rd at 12:45 pm. Come join us! 

 

In 2014, the Conservative government passed the Protection of Communities and Exploited Persons Act (PCEPA) that forced sex workers to work in a context of criminalization. Instead of protecting sex workers - as it claimed to do - PCEPA violates our rights and autonomy, increases stigmatization and isolation, and endangers our health and safety! We need to end criminalization so that we can live and work safely and freely! 

Court hearings begin at 10am on October 3rd, and continue throughout the week. 

Join us at a series of events to show your solidarity with sex workers in our fight to end the criminalization of sex work!
