“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 Project Coordinator, working under the supervision of the SWUAV Executive Director and the SWUAV Board of Directors, is responsible for the coordination of project activities, including supporting Project Peer Workers, assisting in the design and implementation of the project activities. This includes but is not restricted to meeting and workshop facilitation, outreach in outdoor/public spaces and indoor sex venues, assisting with generation of knowledge translation materials, promoting project activities and assisting the project evaluation.
