ANNOUNCING THE NEW YORK STATE ANTI-TRAFFICKING COALITION’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. THIS PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBIT CELEBRATES OUR STATE’S NEW ABOLITIONISTS.
WHO ARE THEY?
YOU MAY BE SURPRISED.

CLICK HERE TO SEE THE INCREDIBLE PHOTOS OF THESE INCREDIBLE PEOPLE.

NYSATC wishes to extend a huge thank you to the 54 men and women who joined the ranks of New York’s New Abolitionists and agreed to be included in the portrait gallery.  This photography project would also not have been possible without the generous support of  Lynn and John Savarese and Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, and the masterful workmanship of Carl Saytor at Luxlab, a premier printing and development firm.
