2020 In Review

December 20, 2020

A Reflection on 2020

Fight to End Exploitation is an organization that faces challenges and overcomes in order to support one another and the communities we serve. 2020 has changed many of our lives, created new norms, and allowed for our team to re-evaluate and adjust our programs and priorities. This year, we lost our office due to a fire during local unrest, we hired a new executive director, we witnessed a trafficker sentenced to 27 years in prison, and we rapidly expanded our response to victims in need of advocacy,

We are exceptionally proud of our board, staff, and volunteers who rallied as a team despite the global pandemic to make a difference, embrace change, fight back, and continue to battle the heinous act of human trafficking. As we look ahead to 2021, our mission remains the same: we exist to end human trafficking and exploitation in our community, in our state, and in our nation.

With Gratitude,

Neal Lofy (Board President) and Melania Brostowitz (Executive Director)
