    *Christine Bruckert
    Winner, Political Activist of the Year

    Chris Bruckert is a former sex worker and a longtime advocate for the rights of sex workers. Motivated to undertake graduate studies by her frustration with misrepresentations of the industry and its workers, Chris devoted herself to bridging the academic world and the community. Her 2006 needs assessment of Ottawa's street-based sex workers allowed sex workers to have a voice in a debate that too often excludes them. In 2008, Chris helped found POWER (Prostitutes of Ottawa-Gatineau Work, Educate, Resist) — the first organization in Ottawa run by and for sex workers. Chris helped POWER secure funding, hire a project coordinator, provide training to sex workers, undertake public education and mount the first-ever rally for sex workers' rights on Parliament Hill.
