/ -- Rosi Orozco, internationally acclaimed human rights activist and author, releases her newest title today at an online event that connects speakers and attendees across an array of educational, activism, political, and entertainment spheres. The event will be hosted by international leadership consultant Dr. Miguel Angel Moreno and Lourdes Aguirre, the Hispanic leader for White House faith-based initiatives.

Rita María Hernández held a leadership role in Orozco's organizations, Fundación Camino a Casa and Comisión Unidos Vs. Trata, for many years, and continues to be heavily involved in activism and empowerment causes.
