Nathaniel Erb, Founder

Nathaniel has earned the respect of legislators and leaders in social justice reform across the globe. Nathaniel made his public policy debut when, at 23, he wrote the first college access law for survivors of human trafficking in the U.S. Since then, Nathaniel has leveraged his experience building leading civil society organizations and championing issues to fight for the advancement of policy related to human trafficking, criminal justice reform, health care, municipal development, and financial crimes.

In addition to championing issues before legislative bodies, Nathaniel supports the growth of civil society through the advancement of tools, community resourcing, and access to government. Nathaniel regularly enjoys teaching on human trafficking, youth leadership, and public policy at The George Washington University, University of Baltimore, American University, and elsewhere.

Mr. Erb is a true professional, who always comes prepared and well informed to meetings, hearings and events. It has been a pleasure working with Nathaniel on Human Trafficking legislation in Maryland. We have worked to pass nearly half a dozen related laws to protect victims of trafficking and help provide resources to the victims. I have no doubt that many of our accomplishments would not have been possible without the knowledge and devotion Mr. Erb displayed consistently.
