In everything we do, we center the health, safety, and self-determination of the women we serve.
Since 2002, SWAN has provided support to im/migrant sex workers in Greater Vancouver.
Im/migrant sex workers face multi-layered stigma, racism, and criminalization. Because of this, they are also unable to access mainstream support services. We offer low-barrier, culturally-specialized, and non-stigmatizing services through our frontline programs.
We recognize that there is an urgent need to fight for the labour and legal protections of im/migrant sex workers, and we continue to work alongside them to secure their full and meaningful inclusion in our society.
