Safe harbor Outreach project (SHOP)
The Safe Harbour Outreach Project (SHOP) is the only sex worker advocacy program in Newfoundland & Labrador, operated by the St. John’s Status of Women Council/Women’s Centre. Our mandate at SHOP is to advocate for the human rights of all women who have engaged in sex work across our city and province, both on an individual and collective level. We have connected with over 250 women and in practice our work involves a great deal of individual support, outreach, and advocacy. This unique program was developed in partnership with women who engage in sex work, and everything we do is informed by the real experts – sex workers themselves.
For more information and to support sex workers’ human rights follow SHOP on Facebook or Twitter, visit our website at sjwomenscentre.ca/programs/SHOP or contact our two SHOP staff.
