CHANGE meeting on US policy and sex work

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
