Dr. Andrea Krusi speaks at PACE event on sex workers and the housing crisis

GSHI Research Associate Dr. Andrea Krusi joined PACE Society to speak on how the housing crisis impacts sex workers at an event  for the City of Vancouver’s Homelessness Action Week. Dr. Krusi presented research from GSHI's AESHA project that speaks to the lack of safe and affordable housing for sex workers.

The event, called Experiencing Homelessness: Sex Work Storytellers, included monologues by spokespeople from PACE Society.

As told to the CBC, Dr. Krusi commented that legislation introduced in 2014 (which targets buyers rather than sex workers), negatively impacts sex workers, and that landlords in Vancouver discriminate against sex workers.
