Rio Vella – Individual Award Nominee – 2002

Rio has been working with young women involved in prostitution on issues of domestic and sexual violence since the mid 80’s. She has provided a vital support for these young women who are often homeless and reliant on their male pimps, driving a van through the streets where they are most vulnerable, offering information and support services through which these women can access legal aid, medical help, and social services.
