WAM! Vancouver operates in accordance with the core values of WAM! International, with the following additions:
Indigenous Land: WAM! Vancouver acknowledges that the City of Vancouver occupies unceded Coast Salish Territory, specifically the land of the Skwxwú7mesh, Xwméthkwyiem, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples. WAM! Vancouver aims to incorporate the history of colonization of Aboriginal peoples, as well as the traditional knowledge of these groups, into all of its activities.
Choice: WAM! Vancouver supports women’s reproductive rights without condition. WAM! Vancouver therefore supports a woman’s full and unqualified access to abortion, and reserves the right to exclude persons or organizations who aim to infringe upon this right in any way at any WAM! event or within any WAM! space (including the listserv).
Sex work/prostitution: WAM! Vancouver supports the dignity of current and former sex workers/women in prostitution and advocates for their safety. While individual members of WAM! Vancouver have a wide range of opinions regarding the legalization, decriminalization, or abolition of sex work/prostitution in Canada, as an organization, WAM! Vancouver does not advocate for any one approach. Any discussions about sex work/prostitution in WAM! Vancouver spaces (including the listserv) or at WAM! Vancouver events shall abide by WAM!’s core values, and not infringe upon the dignity of any person.
All conversations that take place on this list are considered off the record and confidential. As a member of the WAM! listserv, you are expected to respect this confidentiality. If you wish to quote a post from the WAM! listserv in any publication or forum, or share a post written by a member to anyone else, you MUST receive permission from the person who made the post first. When posting to the list, if you want to give blanket permission to members to share your post, you must state this explicitly. If it is not stated, permission to share does not exist, regardless of the content of the post. Violations of this policy may result in dismissal from the list.
