Remember the Living: Monica Forrester on Sisters in Spirit and Indigenous Sex Workers

Maggie’s is honoured to release this film, shot on October 4 2012 at the Sisters In Spirit Vigil organized by the Native Women’s Resource Centre of Toronto. In this film Monica asks us to honour and grieve the Indigenous trans sisters in the sex industry that we’ve lost due to systemic abuse and neglect, to demand more–and to remember those who are still living! Maggie’s: The Toronto Sex Workers Action Project is an organization run for and by local sex workers. Our mission is to assist sex workers in our efforts to live and work with safety and dignity. We are founded on the belief that in order to improve our circumstances, sex workers must control our own lives and destinies. Interview and footage by Chanelle Gallant. “Nothing about us, without us is for us!” Visit Maggies Toronto
