I’m part of a volunteer organization called Crossroads, it’s an outreach street van for sex workers in Edmonton. We provide harm reduction strategies, safe needles, food, clothing and hygiene services. We also offer a drop-in service; it’s a safe haven here in Edmonton. It’s important to be part of your community, to connect with people you might not see on an everyday basis, and it’s a great way to meet other people and to feel like you’re part of something bigger. I’ve met some amazing people and definitely gained different perspectives on life and different experiences. I believe Canada is a better place if everybody gives a little of their time each week.
