Abolitionists Honored by Salt Lake Area Domestic Violence Coalition

Cristina Flores at 2News reports about Gina Bellazetin, a modern-day abolitionist in Utah.

“People think of slavery back in the 17th century, but this is today. There are slaves in the state of Utah,” she said.

Bellazetin, who works for The Utah Health and Human Rights Project, is among several people who were honored by the Salt Lake Area Domestic Violence Coalition.

The group has earned a federal grant to help victims make a dignified life for themselves as well as navigate through the courts as prosecutors build cases against traffickers who abuse them.

“We’ve encountered 500 possible victims in Utah,” Bellazetin told the media.

  1. Perhaps you should ask Ms Gina Bellazetin about the underground latino paralegal services she and her friends offer for a fee, practicing law without a license or competence, getting clients from this publicity as an activist that she goes out seeking. Many of the con people praying on immigrants in utah are the same ones who portray themselves as their helpers.
