Carol Robles-Román

Carol Robles-Román plays a key role in the fight for women’s equality by calling for stronger action against domestic and sexual violence, strengthening women’s economic security, and ending gender bias. As former Deputy Mayor for Legal Affairs and Counsel to Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, she spearheaded New York City’s anti-trafficking initiatives, including the multi-media public education campaign, “Let’s Call an End to Human Trafficking,” which brings human trafficking out of the shadows by increasing public awareness of the problem.

“Trafficking can thrive because this crime is often hidden from the public eye. We can fight this human rights violation by recognizing the signs and knowing how to help potential victims, particularly at-risk youth.”
