Stepping Stone: Campaigning for Sex Workers

Stepping Stone has launched a new campaign with some profound visuals that inspire a pause for thought.

Founded in 1987, Stepping Stone is the only organization in the Maritimes that deals specifically with street life and sex work from a harm reduction model.

Predominantly staffed by former sex-workers, the organization provides support to hundreds of female, male and transgendered sex workers through the promotion of choice, the provision of protection, advocacy and a safe house.

Perhaps I am alone in the subsequent sentiment, but the above would be a much better campaign to grace billboards than the tired lingerie, trainers and mobile malarkey.

    Fantastic πŸ™‚ my best friend is Canadian. I have never been there, but I do hope to some day. Canada really seems to have a pretty admirable approach to such issues.
