This project, Confronting Bad Dates: Research, Collaboration, and Action to Reduce Violence Against Survival Sex Workers, customized and tested a bad date reporting and/or response strategy with knowledge gained from local consultations and practices in other parts of Canada and internationally.

It was an innovative project designed to pool the knowledge and experiences of four stakeholder groups:

Ÿ Sex Workers,

Ÿ The Vancouver Police Department,

Ÿ Victim Services, and

Ÿ Sex worker-friendly Community Organizations

The outcomes and building of bridges between these groups and sex workers has improve sex worker safety over time. Some of the issues identified have not been addressed but some have. This report is an interesting look inside sex worker organizing in BC after the disaster in the case of the Missing Women.
