Parent-SW: Know Your Rights Workshop

Wednesday, August 11th - 6:00 - 7:30pm/est | Registration Required (RSVP)

Our legal committee is teaming up with our Sex Worker Parenting Collective to offer the first in a series of legal workshops for sex-working parents (current and former) looking for more information on their rights. Our first session will focus on navigating issues in schools and daycares, and dealing with Children's Aid Society. Legal committee representatives will be present to answer your questions and our facilitator will help guide a general group discussion around some of the key issues sex-working parents are facing, ideas on best practices and tips, with our legal volunteers!


Please note that these sessions will not provide legal advice and we cannot address specific participant scenarios. But we are pleased to offer legal information that's relevant to SWer parents across different types of situations. If you are in need of legal resources or supports for a specific scenario, please connect with us at info@maggiesto.org.

Registration for this session is required! (Register here!)

After registration you will receive a confirmation email with the Zoom meeting details. If you don't receive this confirmation in 24 hours, be sure to check your spam/junk folder. If you require assistance or have any questions you may contact Jenny at boardchair@maggiesto.org*


About Maggie's Toronto:

We're one of Canada's oldest by and for sex worker justice organizations. We've served Toronto's downtown east end since 1986.

Our mission is to empower sex workers to live and work with safety and dignity and to lead the fight for decriminalization and sex workers’ rights in Canada.

Maggie’s is founded on a number of principles which guides our activities:

  • Sex work is socially legitimate, important, and valuable work;

  • Sex work is not the same as human trafficking;

  • Sex worker empowerment stops human trafficking;

  • Sex work is not intrinsically dangerous, oppressive or exploitative;

  • Selling sex is a pragmatic and sensible response to a limited range of financial options;

  • The oppression of sex workers does not affect everyone in the same way; and

  • Sex workers can be safer sex professionals.
