Canada Day 2022 was the launch of PROS.BUZZ a unique advertising and community hub with the goal to achieve community destigmatization against all the PROS and patrons in our neighborhoods. We started sharing the stories of PROS and their Patrons in an attempt to remove the mystery around our demographic, and share more about who we are as members of your community. We also started sharing PROS.WIKI and knowledge intended to support and provide resources for those interested in learning more and finding ways they can support all the members of our community.
The next step for us was to start connecting with local business owners, in an attempt to share knowledge and introduction to the PROS in the neighborhood. At the same time, we are able to provide unique advertising opportunities while also supporting the symbol of the Red Umbrella and the international day-to-end violence against all sex workers.
THE RESPONSE WAS… AMAZING
Since PROS founders are already active members of the community, we already had great relationships with the local business owners and locations that we frequented. What we didn’t expect, was the warm welcome we received from many other locations in our hometown of Victoria, BC, and their willingness to learn and support our goal of community destigmatization.
Did you know Red Umbrella day is celebrated worldwide? It’s a day where we connect with our community and allies to put forth the end of violence against ALL the PROS in our neighborhoods.
PROS in YYJ
We have been hard at work finding all the fun #doitYYJ places you can visit before or after the Victoria BC Red Umbrella March (hosted by our local nonprofit organization Peers Victoria) here is what we found…
PUT IT IN MY… MOUTH
Join our Team PROS for some social networking, sharing of ideas, and finding out how you can help share the importance of the Red Umbrella every day. We have reserved our favorite table at JR SLIMS in Victoria BC and invite you to join us to share ideas and opinions on how we can achieve destigmatization in our neighbourhoods.PROS.BUZZ
PUT IT IN MY… BAG
PROS love finding new to us trinkets and treasures. If you are an ethical shopper, consignment stores like Rich Rags in Victoria BC is the place to shop. Celebrating almost 30years in business we know being a self employed woman is hard, but owners like this paved the way for us to do so.PROS.BUZZ
