Join us to learn from Rosa Nelly Santos Navarro, the President and 
Coordinator of the Committee of the Families of Disappeared Migrants of 
Progreso (COFAMIPRO).

COFAMIPRO began in 1999 out of the radio program “Sin Fronteras” or 
“Without Borders” transmitted by Radio Progreso | Página Oficial 
<https://www.facebook.com/RadioProgresoPaginaOficial/> and formed into 
an organization to search for the loved ones of Hondurans that 
disappeared on the migrant trail to the United States. Today, COFAMIPRO 
brings attention to the human rights violations committed against 
migrants and the push factors that force migrants to flee their homes, 
calling for governments to take responsibility. Committed to the work of 
advocating for the rights of migrants, Rosa Nelly has traveled around 
the world, sharing the story of Honduran migrants and their families.

Extensive reading, activist materials and advocacy information about the 
Berta Cáceres Human Rights in Honduras Act will be provided.
