vision

To be a reference for the general public, as well as for people who are victims of sexual exploitation by offering them a real way out.

myth

We might think that there is nothing wrong with purchasing sex. After all, I’m paying her, it’s the oldest job in the world and she’s willing to do it. Otherwise, she would be doing something else.

reality

purchasing sex is wrong: real people, real testimonies

I live in Montreal and am a victim of exploitation who has used hard drugs such as crack.

I am currently on methadone; I have been off of opiates for years.

I‘ve slept on the streets too many times, but today my pride and priority is the 5 1/2 apartment that my fiancé and I have.

This is our palace.

I also go by the name “Legal Tender” as a singer, abolitionist, activist and social entrepreneur.

It is not easy to come out of sexual exploitation when we don’t have anyone around telling is that we are better than that, to remind us that we have abilities and strengths outside of offering sexual services to men.

I am a survivor of human trafficking.

I started in prostitution because I lacked the money to meet the needs of my children and me.
