BCBDAR

The BC Bad Date and Aggressor Reporting (BC BDAR) Project is a three-year project to create a provincially integrated bad date reporting system across BC.

A Bad Date Reporting System is a sex worker led response to report violent incidents or safety concerns to peers and/or outreach workers. These incidents and concerns are tracked in databases and distributed to help keep each other safe.

The BC BDAR project will build a tool that will incorporate all communities and sectors of sex workers in BC.

Get Involved

Over the next three years we invite sex workers and sex worker-serving projects, programs, networks, and organizations across BC to be deeply involved in the design and implementation of the BC BDAR tool and related education opportunities through extensive province-wide community consultations, surveys, forums, and advisory groups. We will update this webpage with our progress and upcoming ways to get involved. Stay tuned and watch this space or sign up to our newsletter for upcoming opportunities.
