Saturday April 14, Toronto: Protest at Queens Park
[free-them] together with Walk With Me Victim Services Canada and concerned citizens, plans to protest at Queen’s Park to advocate for the government to draft new prostitution legislation that can stand a constitutional challenge. We need laws that protect victims of trafficking! Take a stand for freedom by joining the protest:
When: Apr. 14, 2012 at 12 noon – 3 p.m.
Where: Queen’s Park, Toronto, ON
Friday April 27, Toronto: Dinner & Theatre Production Presented by Sex Trade Survivors
Together we’ll reveal the sex trade through a community arts exploration of the life, times and challenges of the prostituted. The audience will interact with us, finding ways to change tough situations.
The play will present problematic scenarios that end in a dilemma to deliberately provoke the audience into taking action. The audience members can stop a scene in which a character is being oppressed in some way. In this way, we gain insights into potential alternative behaviors and problem-solving strategies, and share ideas for negotiating difficult relationships and avoiding / overcoming risk.
Honourary guests include The Crown who argued against the decriminalization of Ontario’s prostitution laws and MP Joy Smith. Seats are limited, please RSVP now via facebook or the email above.
