awareness week

Each year, the Province of BC declares Stop the Sexual Exploitation of Children and Youth Awareness Week. Held annually in the month of March, the awareness week recognizes the importance of supporting communities to develop prevention, education, enforcement and intervention strategies to address the sexual exploitation of children and youth.

Why A Fuchsia Daisy?

In the same way you might wear a yellow daffodil pin to raise awareness about cancer, we chose the daisy as our flower pin, as it is a flower that easily connects to childhood innocence.  It’s fuchsia because the colour is a combination of red (for red light districts) and purple (B.C.’s Provincial colour for violence prevention). Please make a small donation, and pick up the daisy pin. By wearing the pin you are standing with us in the fight against sexual exploitation and human trafficking.

  • Canadian Tire, Coquitlam (1200 Seguin Dr)
