PBS Television: Destination America

October 14, 2005

Tune in to PBS TV on Oct. 26 to watch the story of Rodi Alvarado, the courageous asylum seeker who fled Guatemala after suffering ten years of brutal domestic violence. Rodi’s story will be featured on “Destination America,” a four-part series examining an array of immigration and refugee issues. The fourth episode, airing Oct. 26 (check local listings for times), features a segment on Ms. Alvarado’s claim for refugee protection, entitled “Breaking Free: A Woman’s Journey.” Rodi Alvarado’s highly publicized case is at the center of the push for protecting women who flee serious violations of their human rights.
