RFA recognised for human trafficking story

Radio Free Asia (RFA) has won the prestigious Gracie Award for its Cantonese language feature “Kidnapped Woman Reunites with Family”.

The annual Gracie Awards recognize programming created by women and focused on issues relating to women. RFA’s feature took out the outstanding investigative program or feature category in this year’s awards.

“Radio Free Asia strives to tell the stories of the subjugated, oppressed, and those left without recourse,” said Libby Liu, President of RFA. “Unfortunately, women and girls too often fall into this category, as they are trafficked, abused, and left vulnerable without any way to reclaim their lives. 

“We are thrilled to earn this award and appreciate the attention it helps bring to human trafficking and the struggle too many women face in Asia and throughout the world.” She added.

Among the winners in this year’s competition are CNN, Al Jazeera English, ABC News, Bloomberg Radio, and Univision.
