No, we work with people of all genders who are involved in sex work. Since our inception, we have pushed for systemic changes in attitudes toward, and the treatment of, all people who are involved in sex work.
No. While we do have a number of current or former sex workers on staff, our staff have a wide range of experiences both within and outside of sex work. With that said, we firmly believe that services are strengthened when relationships are based on mutual experience and Sex Workers are able to receive support from one another.
While the exact skills vary depending on the position available, we look for staff who are non-judgmental, compassionate, and committed to Sex Worker rights. Hiring preference is always given to individuals who have direct experience in sex work, in addition to the skills and education required of the position.
Our career opportunities are advertised on our website and at Charity Village. Please note that we currently have no openings.

If you are interested in volunteering with our organization, please contact us by phone at (604) 872-7651 or email at email@example.com.

We understand that Sex Workers are disproportionately impacted by intersecting social and structural inequalities, such as sexism (including transphobia), racism, colonialism, and poverty, that undermine their access to social, health, and legal supports. Among other things, we advocate for: affordable housing; access to health and substance use services; child custody and supports; tenant rights; family reunification; and, legal access reforms.
