sex work 

is work

SWAN promotes the rights, health & safety of im/migrant women

engaged in indoor sex work through front-line service & systemic advocacy.

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.

SWAN's services are free and confidential. 


For direct services in English, Mandarin or Cantonese,

call or text 778-865-6343, send an email,

or contact us on WeChat.


SWAN operates independently from government, law enforcement and faith-based groups.

With gratitude for the wisdom of all First Peoples, 

we acknowledge that we live & work on the stolen ancestral lands

of the Musqueam, Squamish & Tsleil-Waututh Nations.
