INITIATIVES

SEXUAL EXPLOITATION WORKING GROUP

The Sexual Exploitation Working Group (SEWG) is an Edmonton-based leadership group working collaboratively to create awareness of sexual exploitation and sex trafficking, and its causes and impacts. The SEWG is a collaborative of community partners, law enforcement, municipal and provincial government, and REACH Edmonton.

 

The SEWG will host the annual Sexual Exploitation Week of Awareness.

 

INITIATIVE GOALS

  • SEWG aims to collaborate to help end sexual exploitation in Edmonton, by raising awareness about this complex social issue and connecting front-line workers to training tailored to understanding how to better serve clients who are being exploited or are at risk of being exploited.

  • REACH supports this work by providing administrative, communications and financial support to the group.

 

OUTCOMES

  • SEWG events focus on connecting community members and front line workers with information and educational opportunities to help them recognize and address sexual exploitation in their work or communities. 
  • Information about the contributing causes and effects of exploitation is clearly and efficiently distributed to SEWG members, front line workers and the public, via social media, the SEWG website and various public events and training opportunities.
