Cottage Grove, MN, May 19, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- One small voice can make one big difference. Trudy Baltazar's new book, A Road to Freedom proves that true.
Baltazar understands life isn’t always fair, but that doesn’t stop her from doing the right thing when she can. An activist at heart, Baltazar saw an injustice and knew she had to do something about it.
Preferring to work behind the scenes in of support others, one particular court case made the local news, captivated Baltazar, and wouldn’t let her go. The case was about Koua Fong Lee, a husband and father wrongly imprisoned due to a malfunction of his car which caused sudden acceleration and loss of brakes in his Toyota, leaving three people dead. While Baltazar didn't know the man or the victims, she felt compelled to act when the county attorney opposed a new trial despite insurmountable new evidence and forty-four new witnesses stating the exact thing happened in their same year Toyota. In her quest for justice, Baltazar learned how standing up for others can help break down barriers that keep humanity from becoming all it can be.
A Road To Freedom: Strangers Restore Justice for an Innocent Man is a journey of how life’s adversities can be used for good.
According to Erika Applebaum, Executive Director of Minnesota Innocence Project, A Road to Freedom: Strangers Restore Justice for an Innocent Man is "A truly inspiring story how one person can and did make a difference for a total stranger just because it was the right thing to do.“
“Trudy’s actions and ability to catalyze change led to the redemption of more than one man," says Kathleen Crandall, Personal Brand Strategist and Co-Owner of Meaningful Connections. "Trudy’s story is about what happens when we reach out and help one another. Trudy’s story makes me want to be a better person every single day and to give a voice to those who have been silenced.”
This book focuses on encouraging mankind to reach out to others without regard to race, religion, or public status, even when there’s nothing in it for ourselves.
A Road to Freedom: Strangers Restore Justice for an Innocent Man is currently available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and for the Kindle/Nook.
