Destination Justice and RoCK sign MoU

Destination Justice is proud to announce the signing of an MoU with the Rainbow Community of Kampuchea (RoCK), a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) support and advocacy organisation.

The RainbOw Community Kampuchea (RoCK) is an LGBT group. It was formed after the successful Cambodia Pride Week 2009 (10-17th May) when LGBT Pride volunteers wanted to continue working to improve the lives of LGBT people in Cambodia. A week-long Pride involving various events (workshops, film festival, art exhibition, media coverage, social events) was an empowering experience for Cambodian LGBT as they had opportunities to share their experiences and bring more visibility to their lives and their concerns. They felt a stronger sense of community and wished to continue to work together to bring more understanding and visibility of LGBT people  to Cambodian society.

At Destination Justice, we firmly believe that social justice for all cannot be achieved with discrimination affecting people on account of their sexual orientation and gender identity, this is why in respect to this MoU, Destination Justice will support RoCK’s work by offering its services as legal consultants.
