·        MAP(Mobile Access Project) is an essential overnight service providing women sex workers with options for health and safety

·        MAP is operated through a partnership with WISH and PACE

·        We can never forget the 67 women who went missing from the same streets where the MAP van works every night.

·        What is the social cost of taking the MAP van off the road?

·        Show the government that they can make the difference between life and death

·        95% of all "Bad Date" reports are made to the MAP van staff, providing the only and immediate warning for sex workers against violent predators
