The BC Bad Date and Aggressor Reporting (BC BDAR) Project aims to create a province-wide bad date reporting system for sex workers across BC.

A bad date is anything that a sex worker doesn’t want themselves or others to experience.

A bad date reporting system is a peer-led network where sex workers anonymously share reports about bad dates with each other so they can make informed decisions in taking new clients.

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.
