Dr. Anne Gallagher is a global authority on the international legal and policy aspects of human trafficking and related exploitation. She served as a career UN official from 1992 to 2003 working with the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.

In 1998 she was appointed Special Adviser on Human Trafficking to Mary Robinson, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights. In that capacity she represented the High Commissioner in the negotiations for the UN Organized Crime Convention and its Protocols on Trafficking and Migrant Smuggling. More recently, She completed the definitive legal commentary to the United Nations Principles and Guidelines on Human Rights and Human Trafficking.

Rosi Orozco was born in Jardines Del Pedrigal in the south of Mexico City. Her eyes were opened to Mexico’s trafficking problem in 2005 by a film she saw in Washington DC at a Concerned Women For America (CWFA) event. She worked with various NGOs, including Camino A Casa, a safe house for trafficking victims in Mexico City, before entering politics in 2009. She’s now a Congresswoman, and President of the Special Commission Against Human Trafficking. Often she says: “I didn’t come here because of politics. I came here for the problem of human trafficking.”
