In 2005, invited to Washington, D.C. by Concerned Women for America, she had her first approach to the issue of trafficking people, where she got engaged and accepted the challenge of fighting for eradicate the slavery in her country.
Rosi Orozco works tirelessly to recover and successfully reintegrate victims of human trafficking into society who have suffered different forms of exploitation: sexual, work, work forced, begging, forced matrimony, among others. The struggle and the Rosi’s main purpose is to free those who have been abused.
On many occasions, during his work, Rosi has put his life at risk to free girls from territories who for decades have been untouchables for Mexican justice and where red spotlights are presented for sexual exploitation. These places include areas such as La Mercy.
Once Rosi became involved in the issue of human trafficking, she established a shelter specializing in caring for victims of human trafficking and exploitation. This was a joint development with specialists and psychologists, which became a unique model of care, exclusive for the care of victims of these crimes.
Over the years Rosi has interviewed more than 200 victims and helped to empower themselves and be able to move forward in their lives. She represents the voices of these women, to ensure that their stories are heard by the authorities and society. Some women with their protected identity have had the opportunity to speak in meetings with authorities, schools, forums, media, etc. to demand justice and prevent other
young people, as well as creating social awareness, of how this crime affects life of who are his victims.

Trafficking, a civil association that seeks to unify mutual support between different strata of society, politics, business, the arts and international media, in the struggle that concerns everyone.
