A grant to support the participation of non-Cambodian Asia Pacific Network of Sex Workers (APNSW) staff and members in the June 4 Day of Action held by Women's Network for Unity in Phnom Penh. On that day, more than 200 sex workers brought attention to the police crackdown on the sex industry and the alleged human rights violations, including physical and sexual abuse, increased HIV vulnerability, and loss of livelihood, that have accompanied that crackdown. Participation of non-Cambodian APNSW staff and members allowed for a broader regional perspective which added depth to the forum's dialogue.
