Les 3 sex* is a non-profit organization and charity that tackles issues related to sexual health by mobilizing the Canadian community on sexual issues.
The mandate of Les 3 sex* is to fight for the improvement of sexual health and sexual rights through the implementation of the following four objectives :
- To promote sexual rights and sexual health through participatory sex education based on co-built knowledge, by means of an online platform where news, scientific research, stories, and articles are published in order to highlight various issues related to human sexuality and to suggest reflections that are accessible to the entire Canadian community.
- To promote sexual rights, sexual health and sex education by organizing awareness campaigns, projects, and activities for the whole Canadian community to share knowledge about sexual health and about the progress of sexual rights.
- To promote sexual rights, sexual health and sex education by providing accessible resources (e.g. video clips, awareness-raising tools, educational workshops) and by organizing mobilization activities for the whole Canadian community.
- To act as representatives for community organizations and qualified decision makers involved in the defence of sexual rights and in the fight for sexual health, and to establish strong partnerships to support this mission.
