This is a campaign to help raise funds for Safe Space in London, Ontario. With the recent passing of bill C-36 on November 6, 2014 as law, these laws will be enforced beginning December 6, 2014. Sex workers, especially outdoor sex workers, will be made vulnerable under these new laws. Safe Space is a volunteer run support centre for sex workers, allies and women in crisis operating in London's Old East Village.

More about Safe Space: "We are a volunteer run support centre for sex workers, allies and women in crisis currently operating out of EVAC at 757 Dundas. Our model is one of empowerment with the goal of meeting women where they're at and helping sex workers operate with safety and with dignity. We hope to make real a community that strives to raise the basic living conditions of its most vulnerable and exploited members. We are open Monday and Tuesday nights, 6:00pm - 11:00pm and offer harm-reduction supplies, HIV & STI/STD educational resources, cosmetics, clothes, hygienic goods, first aid, food, coffee, tea, and information about current services in London. We recognise a woman's right to choose or refuse sex work and we work to educate the public about sex work in London as well as promoting the decriminalization of sex work."

The "Rights Not Rescue" Tee - Charity Tee in support of PACE Society - Sweat shop free indie apparel for harm reduction hipsters.

PACE Society is located in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver, BC, Canada. We offer low-barrier programming and support in order to serve Vancouver’s most marginalized populations; people who often fall through the cracks due to ineligibility for services that require a fixed address or drug and alcohol abstinence can access our services. In this respect, PACE is on the frontline of support for those in Vancouver who need it most.

We are made up of dedicate, compassionate individuals who are committed to providing Sex Worker-led and driven programs and services to Sex Workers.


PACE promotes safer working conditions by reducing harm and isolation through education and support. We believe that Sex Workers are valuable members of our community and are entitled to the same rights as all other human beings.


We envision a future where all Sex Workers are free from the risk of violence, discrimination, social stigmas and harms so they may enjoy the same rights as all other Canadian citizens, including the rights to life, liberty, security of the person and equal protection under the law.

We hope for long-term commitments to social change within all levels of government and individual citizens to eradicate systemic issues that lead to survival sex work such as poverty, homelessness, health and addictions so that individuals can make safe, health and informed decision in their lives.
