Where We Came From

RhED pays tribute to the collective energy and achievement of all those who have worked against discrimination and towards respectful community responses to sex workers in Victoria. In particular we pay respect to the Prostitutes’ Collective of Victoria and its forebears – to all their members and supporters, activists and volunteers, committee members, staff and coordinators. They built the platform for sexworkers’ rights in Victoria and, indeed, provided modelling for the movement in Australia and internationally.

RhED continues to provide information, education, referrals and advocacy. RhED has a broad body of knowledge of the sex industry, including staff who have experience in the industry; and the employment of peer workers who contribute to the delivery of RhED programs.
