Municipal Sex Trafficking Advocacy

In order to increase the community resources for those who are being exploited, BridgeNorth has served in an advisory capacity in the creation of shelters and transitional houses that specifically serve trafficked individuals. Additionally, Casandra has been invited to speak on numerous occasions before lawmakers and others who have the power to enact regulation that will better protect women and girls who are being exploited, as well as prevent exploitation from happening in the first place. Casandra actively advises local municipalities on anti-human trafficking legislation and licensing.

A recent municipal Body Rub Parlour example is how in May 2021 BridgeNorth helped the Town of Newmarket to take a stand against allowing erotic massage in the municipality.
