Born into a family of activists for a woman’s right to choose and fairness for all, she joined People For the American Way right out of college. According to the Washington Post, she served as executive director of the Alliance to Stop Slavery and End Trafficking, where she authored groundbreaking policy to help end human slavery. In 2009 she went to work for the State Department’s anti-trafficking office guiding the Obama administration’s intensified focus on human trafficking at home and abroad.
