Mexican journalist Lydia Cacho receives the 2010 Tully Center Free Speech Award for her exposure of child pornography and sex trafficking in Mexico, despite the obstacles.

Lydia Cacho lives by this simple, direct motto: Tell the truth, no matter what.

For the Mexican journalist, telling the truth has led to death threats, abduction, torture, jail time, and years of court battles over her rights as a citizen and reporter. Yet Cacho continues to share her own story and those of victims of child pornography, trafficking, and abuse.

Cacho received the Tully Center for Free Speech Award Tuesday evening for her perseverance in fighting obstacles to free speech.
