SWAT: Sex Worker Alliance of Toronto
The Sex Workers Alliance of Toronto (S.W.A.T.) was founded in 1992 to fight for sex workers rights to fair wages, and safe and healthy working conditions. S.W.A.T. opposes any law that criminalizes sex work. S.W.A.T. provides health and legal information, and free condoms. Volunteers support others working in the sex trade by doing outreach and court watch. S.W.A.T. also educates service providers and policy makers about the needs of sex workers.
Eligibility: S.W.A.T. is open to anyone who works, or who has worked, in the sex trade — exotic dancers, prostitutes, porn performers, sex workers — and friends and supporters.
