Rosa Nelly Santos Navarro is the President and Coordinator of the Committee of the Families of Disappeared Migrants of Progreso. COFAMIPRO began in 1999 out of the radio program “Sin Fronteras” or “Without Borders” transmitted by Radio Progreso 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, push factors that force migrants to flee their homes and calls 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.
