2016 - A Year in Review

2016 ended with a real bang for WRASAC and our services. We had a fantastic and youthful turnout to our annual Reclaim the Night. This was quickly followed by our first national conference on Prostitution and Commercial Sexual Exploitation. We thought we would take this opportunity at the end of the year to reflect on our achievements over the last year.
