One-Year Update on "A Safer Province for Everyone: Responding to Violence Against Sex Workers"
On May 28-29, 2019, over 130 stakeholders from across BC came together in Vancouver on the unceded Coast Salish territories of the Xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱w.7meshsi (Squamish), and əsəlil̓wətaʔɬ (Tsleil- Waututh) Nations to discuss best practices in responding to violence in the context of sex work. The first of its kind, the Safer Province for Everyone Conference hosted sex workers, sex worker organizations, Indigenous organizations, anti-violence organizations, police, three levels of government, health authorities, social service providers, legal organizations and others from across the province.
One of the goals of the Safer Province for Everyone Conference was to develop a provincial action plan with recommendations to target the violence that continues toward sex workers. One year later, this update report provides information on progress made on these recommendations since the conference.
