Anti-prostitution campaign begins this summer

EDMONTON — Graphic posters of injured prostitutes and condom-strewn playgrounds will be front and centre in an anti-prostitution campaign beginning this summer in Edmonton.

Campaign features graphic life-sized photographs depicting the reality of prostitution

Kate Quinn is the Executive Director of the Prostitution Awareness and Action Foundation of Edmonton, the group behind the campaign. She says the posters, depicting the reality of prostitution, will be placed in bus shelters by mid-July.

Quinn says the campaign is geared to the men who use prostitutes.

"We want to raise awareness so that we can change attitudes and behaviours and that we can stop the harmful activity," said Quinn.

Quinn says a $10,000 dollar grant from Alberta Justice will help pay for the campaign.
