Creating a “Safe and Healthy” neighbourhood for residents, businesses and sex workers

Community Discussions

All community members have a role to play in creating a safe and healthy neighbourhood. The first step is to come together and learn about each other’s questions, concerns and thoughts. For neighbourhoods to begin to address issues with respect to sex work a Kitchen Table Discussion Guide was developed to assist in organizing small gatherings of residents, sex workers and individuals from local businesses and service organizations to discuss this issue.
