 Maggie's Toronto. Sex work is real work.

 

Annual General Meeting

Thursday, July 7th

12 - 3pm

526 Richmond Street East 

(please enter through side door on west side of building)

Snacks & tokens will be available.

Meeting is open to volunteers, staff, board members, and service users.

 

At the AGM, we will:

 

  • Elect New Board Members
  • Appoint the Auditor
  • Provide an Annual Report
  • Review and Approve any proposed Bylaw changes

 

If you are interested in joining the Maggie’s board, please attend the meeting with a statement ready. If you are unable to attend the meeting but would still like to run as a board member, please email your statement to Jean at maggiescoord@gmail.com and it will be presented on your behalf.

 

Although lived experience as a sex worker is not a requirement of all board members, it is preferred and at least 4 of 7 members must have experiential knowledge in trading or selling sexual services. We also encourage board members who are living with HIV and/or Hep C, trans*, two spirit and genderqueer people, Black, Indigenous and racialized people, and people living with disabilities. Potential board members should have strong knowledge regarding issues impacting sex workers, and a good understanding of intersectional oppression and the ways in which sex work intersects with issues such as racism, transphobia, poverty, colonialism, disability, drug use, among others. 

 

Board members are expected to attend one 3 hour meeting per month, and take on at least 10 hours of additional work on behalf of the organization. This work could be administrative, advocacy-based, program assistance, campaign drives, fundraising, communications, and other kinds of work in support of Maggie’s. Board members are forbidden from seeking financial compensation as a result of their work at Maggie’s.

recent news 

Maggie's joins 30 organizations (and growing) in calling for a boycott of rabble.ca. For the full statement, click HERE. To add your organization to the boycott, email maggiescoord@gmail.com

 

We have had enough. We are asking for our communities to stand together in solidarity with all those being harmed by Meghan Murphy and attitudes of racism, transphobia/misogyny and anti sex work on the left.

We ask all allies, including authors, activists and community organizations, to join us in observing this boycott through the following actions:

  • Suspend all participation in rabble.ca, including not publishing on the site.
  • Suspend all interviews with rabble.ca writers.
  • Contact rabble.ca editors to let them know why you support this boycott.
  • Invest in publishing in venues that respect all community members and that will be accountable and make genuine efforts to change and grow when they make mistakes.

Our work to create a more fair and just world won’t be stopped by rabble.ca or anyone. We are on the right side of history and we hope that you will join us. We are only as strong as our links to each other and our communities deserve better!
