Student SW: Navigating Academic Spaces

August 12th from 7:00 - 8:30pm/est | Registration Required (RSVP Here!)

Our monthly Real Work Group series is a space for community members to connect about tips and tricks to make our work safe and profitable while boosting our well-being. This month our meeting will take up themes of student sex work and how to navigate student life, academic spaces and the university as a sex worker. Student sex workers face unique circumstances, particularly around stigma, being outed and navigating academic work/life as a (current or former) sex worker. Our August Real Work Group is a guided discussion with our Community Education and Resource Committee to help share tips and tricks of the trade, and identify key areas for resource creation, expanded supports from Maggie's and our community. Join us August 12th from 7:00 - 8:30pm | Registration Required (RSVP Here!)

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.
