Human Rights Activist
Sister Luisa Campos, OP
A native of the Dominican Republic, Sister Luisa is a writer, attorney, and human rights activist. She has served as the Dominican Order’s Co-Promoter for Justice and Peace in Latin America and is the Director of Centro Antonio Montesino.
Her life’s work has been focused on advocating for and defending the rights of women and the impoverished people of the Dominican Republic.
In 2009, she wrote the definitive biography of Pedro de Córdoba, OP, the Prior of the first Dominican community in the Americas. He and his community denounced abuses against the Dominican Republic’s indigenous people.
Hopefully, the English translation of Luisa's book will be available soon. Luisa as done a marvelous service for not only the history of Quisqueya, (Santo Domingo), but for the entire Dominican Order.
