Here's just a small sampling of the work we've helped to succeed over the years.
E&A works on behalf of many organizations to accomplish global missions through advocacy before the U.S. Congress. Over the years, we've worked closely with various organizations on securing legislative changed in areas such as sustainable fashion, organ trafficking, behavioral health, illicit finance, migratory labor, and human trafficking.
E&A's Founder, Nathaniel Erb, spent much of his early career working with the United Nations and other international bodies on issues such as youth entrepreneurship and global ethics. As VP of Operations for the US Federation of UNESCO Centers and Associations, he represented the U.S. body of UNESCO stakeholders at international forums and hosted international delegations at the United Nations. E&A has been built on this experience and continued to actively be involved in international organizations on behalf of clients and as an idepentent advisor.
STate and local Level
E&A has worked closely with municipalities, counties, state governments, and organizations across the U.S. from it's very beginning. One of our core focuses has been to facilitate knowledge sharing between regional actors and represent the perspectives of those on the ground. In the realm of human trafficking policy, E&A has been proud to represent many initiatives led by survivors of human trafficking -- putting their critical perspectives at the forefront of the conversation. E&A continues to work alongside my local and regional task forces, coalitions, and other groups to develop cross-sector policy solutions to human trafficking, criminal justice reform, education, and other issues.
Bipartisan research development
E&A has focused heavily on supporting the growth of evidenced based policy by furthering the involvement of those directly affected by issues and those doing comprehensive research. E&A has had the privilege of co-leading an international working group of researchers from academia and think tanks to develop evidence based policy recommendations on issues related to human trafficking, forced labor, and child labor. This working group is comprised of representatives from The Brookings Institute, The Heritage Foundation, CSIS, Stanford University, AEI, Johns Hopkins University, American University, Urban Institute, and other reputable institutions.
In 2014, E&A Founder, Nathaniel Erb, was chosen to serve on the U.S. Department of State's advisory committee on UNESCO (the U.S. National Commission for UNESCO) alongside representatives from NASA, the Department of the Interior, the University of Georgetown, the United Nations Foundation, and others. In 2015, he became the first elected member of the Commission's Youth Working Group, focusing on empowering youth entrepreneurs and championing youth leadership.Throughout its existence, E&A has leveraged this experience and expanded its role as an advisor to many agencies, organizations, and multi-regional bodies. This history of leadership has afforded E&A many opportunities to better champion its clients needs and diversify their partnerships.
