Charity work: New York’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. This photography exhibit is organized by the New York City End Trafficking Coalition and will travel across the country celebrating New York’s new abolitionists. Who are they? You may be surprised – Meryl Streep, New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, Taina Bien Aime and our own Kevin Ryan, to name just a few.
