Nathaniel Erb: Nathaniel works across the U.S. at the federal, state, and local level on human trafficking, poverty, heath, and human rights policy. In addition, he is a lobbyist with Public Policy Partners where he has the honor of working alongside seasoned experts fighting for HIV/AIDS reform, Alzheimer's care, earned sick and safe leave, municipal representation, and many other areas bettering the State of Maryland. Repeatedly, Nathaniel saw the harm caused by failed policies and governance through his work in the U.S. and abroad. By pure happenstance, Nathaniel became the first person to focus on tackling human trafficking through policy reform in Maryland and one of a handful nationally.
After receiving his Bachelors Degree, Nathaniel left his position as V.P. of Operations of USFUCA and cycled across the continental United States to raise awareness about human trafficking. He and his team cofounded the advocacy and coalition building group Worthwhile: GO. Since 2013, they have covered over 15,000 miles by foot and pedal to build community among the many stakeholders and to support survivor services through their partner, Worthwhile Wear. After returning from their first trip, Nathaniel was asked to lead the policy advocacy of The Samaritan Women and authored the first ever law to provide domestic survivors of human trafficking improved college access.
