Sign the Solidarity Statement for Sex Workers’ Rights

Statement of solidarity with sex workers rights

STATEMENT OF SOLIDARITY

We are opposed to federal, provincial and municipal laws that disproportionately regulate and criminalize bodily autonomy, sexuality and sexual and reproductive health and rights.

We call upon the government of Canada for the total decriminalization of sex work as a first step to protecting and respecting the human rights of all sex workers—this begins with the removal of criminal and immigration laws that criminalize sex work.

We call for the recognition of sex work as meaningful and valuable work that provides economic opportunity for people selling and trading sex.

We call for equal and non-discriminatory access to health, education, occupation, housing, and economic opportunities and rights.

We affirm that sex workers are not criminals to be stigmatized, but rather members of an often exploited and under-protected working class.

We stand in solidarity with sex workers demanding rights, the recognition of sex workers’ agency and decision-making capacity and safe working conditions.

We, the undersigned organizations, pledge to promote the rights of sex workers and to create spaces for sex workers to take leadership and be centered in sex work law reform discussions.
