‘Pyjama Week’ to Heighten Awareness of Sex Trade

University of ManitobaIf you notice University of Manitoba students wearing pyjamas this week, they aren’t lazy dressers, it’s for a cause.

In an effort to raise awareness about Winnipeg’s sex trade workers, a U of M student group called “Segue” is hosting Pyjama Week January 28 to February 1.

Pyjama Week begins with free public lectures on human trafficking and exploitation. Bridget Perrier from Sex Trade 101 will speak about the issue along with Dianna Bussey, a human trafficking consultant from the Salvation Army.

The week is in support of SNOW Night (Safe Night Off Winnipeg Streets) — an event created six years ago by the Salvation Army.

The lectures will be held on the second floor of University Centre on the Fort Garry campus from noon to 2 p.m. today.
