Media Advisory: At Queen’s Park, sex workers and allies demand action from provincial leaders

On December 17, the International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers, sex workers and their allies will be calling on Canada’s provincial leaders to take action.

Sex Professionals of Canada (SPOC), Maggie’s — Toronto Sex Workers’ Action Project, the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network, COUNTERfit Women’s Harm Reduction Program (South Riverdale Community Health Centre), and the publishers of Toronto weekly paper NOW Magazine will bring powerful messages to the provincial government and Ontario premier Kathleen Wynne at 11:00 a.m. in the Queen’s Park Media Studio.

Wynne has already expressed her “grave concern” that the law, brought into force December 6th, will not make sex workers any safer, and the province’s Attorney-General is assessing its constitutional validity.

More information is available here and here.

WHEN: Wednesday, December 17 at 11:00 a.m. ET

WHERE: Queen’s Park Media Studio, Legislative Assembly of Ontario, 111 Wellesley Street West, Toronto
