I spoke to Heather Jarvis and Laura Winters about the Safe Harbour Outreach Project and issues that effect sex workers in Newfoundland.
We talked about the difference between sex work and sex trafficking and the danger of conflating the two, as well as some of the ways that stigma around sex work is perpetuated and the diverse ways it impacts people’s lives in our province. Heather and Laura also unpacked laws around sex work in Canada and explained why we need to advocate for a legal system that focuses on harm reduction.
