Rocio Mora Nieto, the Director of the Association for the Prevention, Reinsertion, and Attention to Women in Prostitution (APRAMP), has been honored as a 2021 Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report Hero, a recognition announced by U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken during the presentation of the Department’s 2021 Trafficking in Persons Report to honor individuals from around the world whose tireless efforts have made a lasting impact on the fight against human trafficking.  Rocío Mora Nieto is one of the eight individuals worldwide to receive this award this year, and the first Spaniard to do so. Rocio’s advocacy for trafficking victims for over 26 years has brought about pivotal changes in Spain’s anti-trafficking landscape. Following the ceremony, Rocio and the other TIP heroes will embark on a State Department-funded International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) virtual exchange program to gain professional development experience and connect with U.S. communities and organizations committed to ending human trafficking.  The U.S. Embassy in Spain congratulates Rocio for this recognition, and expresses gratitude for her tireless work to combat human trafficking. Follow #EndTrafficking for news and updates.
