Last Weeks Speaker Nina


Last week we had the pleasure of Nina Vallins from Project Respect speak at our meeting.
Nina talked on what Project Respect was about. That it was a non-profit community based organisation that aims to empower and support women in the sex industry, including women trafficked to Australia. Project Respect was established in 1998 and conducts outreach work with visits to brothels, holistic support and individual conselling particulary in our local area City of Port Phillip. Nina also touched on health issues, housing, law child custody, violence, drug and alcohol issues, emergency accommondation and support for education.
