GGE’s Executive Director, Joanne Smith Named one of NY’s New Abolitionists!
When people think of abolitionist leaders in New York State, names of 19th century icons like Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman and Elizabeth Cady Stanton come to mind. But New York state has a new generation of 21st century abolitionists- women and men committed to ending human trafficking- here in New York and everywhere. Sanctuary for Families has led the charge in celebrating New York’s leadership in the fight to end human trafficking. On May 23rd, Joanne Smith, Founder & Executive Director of GGE, joined Gloria Steinem, Dorchen Leidholdt, Jimmie Briggs, Ted Bunch and many more as NY’s new abolitionists.
