‘I was abused and trafficked for six years, ‘ says author in tell-all memoir
I just published one of the most difficult podcast interviews I have ever hosted.
I spoke with Antonio Salazar-Hobson, the author of the tell-all memoir Antonio, we know you, which is a shocking, heart-wrenching story of how he, at age four, was kidnapped by a childless, middle-aged white couple and trafficked until the age of ten.
After years of abuse, he attempted suicide before the age of ten.
As a teen, he became connected with American labor leader and civil rights activist Cesar Chavez, who took Antonio under his wing and positively changed the trajectory of his life.
Salazar-Hobson found the strength to graduate law school and become an esteemed lawyer focusing on union-side labor and tribal law, conducting many federal court trials on behalf of Latino workers.
His memoir is a unique story of strength and resilience, providing an enduring example of hope and a model for abused and trafficked children so that they can survive and protect their own ability to love.
