sex work is work

SWAN is one of only two organizations in Canada providing

culturally-specialized supports and advocacy

to im/migrant women engaged in indoor sex work.

SWAN's signature campaigns challenge, debunk and dispel the dominant narratives that racialize, misdefine and harm im/migrant women engaged in indoor sex work.

SWAN critically analyzes mainstream anti-trafficking efforts and discourse, in order to increase protections for persons who are trafficked without harming sex workers.

SWAN advocates for evidence-based laws that endow equal safety, rights, freedoms and protections for im/migrant women engaged in sex work.

SWAN provides culturally-specialized, rights-based and language-appropriate front-line services for im/migrant women engaged in sex work.
