“We Have A Voice”: Indigenous Women Who Do Sex Work Speak Out
Indigenous women are disproportionately represented among women who do sex work in the Vancouver area, and particularly the Downtown Eastside (DTES). This 30-month project, funded by Status of Women Canada, aims to engage with Indigenous women who do sex work in the Metro Vancouver area in an exploration of the issues and factors which are important to them. This project will use a program design that is culturally engaged and relevant for the women who participate. Through this project, we wish to identify the priorities of Indigenous women who do sex work in our community through broad explorations of themes including health, personal and cultural safety, impacts of colonization on individuals and more. This project will also address gaps in policies and programming which create barriers to services and to engagement in public and political discourse for Indigenous women who do sex work.
The Peer Facilitators will be working under the direct supervision of the “I Have a Voice” Project Coordinator. As a group, they will be responsible for assisting with carrying out the project activities including outreach, as well as publicity, promotion and co-facilitation of consultations. Peer Facilitators will also be assisting with generation of knowledge translation materials, and promoting project activities.
