The Center for Health and Gender Equity (CHANGE), with the Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Law at American University Washington College of Law, sponsored a symposium two weeks ago to highlight the importance of engaging sex workers in anti-trafficking and HIV/AIDS efforts, and to demonstrate how anti-prostitution policies and campaigns such as those supported by the US government undermine the US’s own policy objectives to end human trafficking and HIV and AIDS.

Speakers included:
Sara Bradford, Asia Pacific Network of Sex Workers in Cambodia
Shilpa Merchant, Population Services International in India
Sylvia Mollet, DANAYA SO in Mali
Gabriela Leite, Davida in Brazil
