Learn More about Advocacy
Defend Dignity acts as a catalyst for individuals and churches to end sexual exploitation in Canada. Commercial sexual exploitation includes: pornography, strip clubs, escorts, massage parlors and prostitution. All involve the selling of sexual services, which undermine the dignity of women, men and children and are detrimental to a healthy society.
We can use all kinds of skills in this effort to end sexual exploitation.
First Response Bags
What is a First Response Bag? It’s a bag of items totaling $250 for a survivor of exploitation. These items are intended to meet immediate needs. Check with your police or Victim Services Coordinator in your region to see if these bags would be of use.
The purpose of the First Response Bag is to be a gift given to young girls or women who are exiting their experience of sexual exploitation.
Survivor Support Fund
The Defend Dignity Survivor Support Fund was created to provide accessible financial support to individuals who have experienced sexual exploitation in Canada in any form, such as prostitution, sex trafficking, escorting, working in massage parlours and/or strip clubs, survival sex, and/or involvement in pornography.
The Survivor Support Fund will open for applications on October 1, 2022.
