Support + Supplies + Sex Work Allies
Safe Harbour Outreach Project (S.H.O.P.) is the first sex worker advocacy program in Newfoundland and Labrador. Our mandate at S.H.O.P. is to advocate for the human rights of all women and gender-diverse people who have engaged in sex work across our city and province, both on an individual and collective level.
We serve women and gender-diverse people for whom sex work is an occupation. We also serve folks who are in the industry not by choice, who are wishing to make changes in their lives. We support everyone who identifies as a current or former sex worker, regardless of industry sector area – this means that we are here for dancers, street level workers, in and out call workers, web cam workers, phone workers, independent escorts, those who work in porn, massage parlours, and more.
