Maggie's Toronto

Maggie's is an organization run for and by sex workers. Our mission is to assist sex workers in our efforts to live and work with safety and dignity. We are founded on the belief that in order to improve our circumstances, sex workers must control our own lives and destinies.

Maggie's advocates that we should all have the right to choose or reject sex work, just as we have the right to choose or reject any other kind of work.

Volunteer with Us

 

Maggie’s provides a safe and inclusive space for sex workers in Toronto. The organization is also a leader in sex work advocacy in Canada and is recognized for its work internationally. It’s important that volunteers at all levels are committed to and positively represent Maggie’s values and principles.

 

 

 

These include:

  • Sex workers must take the power to control their own destinies and improve their lives.

  • Sex work is real work.

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

  • Sex work is not the same as human trafficking. Sex work is a job selling a sexual service. Trafficking is coerced or forced labour.

  • Sex work is not intrinsically dangerous, oppressive or exploitative. Most of the problems faced are due to legal and social systems that disregard the rights and worth of sex workers.

  • The oppression of sex workers does not affect everyone in the same way. Some face additional oppressions based on racism, colonialism, sexism, transphobia, poverty, homophobia, prison experience, use drugs, are youth or have disabilities.

Help Make A Difference

Volunteer Roles

The role of the Board of Directors is to govern the organization. This means making sure that the organization is fulfilling its mission, is financially responsible, and is a healthy and productive place of work. Maggie’s is interested in recruiting Board Members with business, nonprofit, or financial experience who have a connection to, or lived experience of, sex work. 

Board of Directors

Volunteer help in the office is crucial for Maggie’s, a small nonprofit with limited administration support. Administration work also provides an opportunity for sex workers to diversify their skillset, build their resume and get office experience.

Administration

Standing up for sex workers’ rights and growing awareness of sex work as a legitimate work choice are important activities for Maggie’s. To have an impact, it’s important to help volunteers with lived sex work experience to share their stories and support the movement.

Advocacy

Events are a great way to involve people that have busy schedules or who aren’t sure about committing to volunteering. They are also a great way for volunteers to meet each other and develop their teambuilding skills.
