New York’s New Abolitionists Exhibition Recognizes Center’s Work

Posted: May 28th, 2013 | by Yuval Sheer

On May 23, 2013 Judge Corriero’s portrait was featured at the International Center of Photography as part of the photography project, New York’s New Abolitionists. The judge was selected for this project because of the Center’s work to expand New York’s Safe Harbor laws, in order to protect 16-and 17- year-olds who are arrested for prostitution in New York.

The exhibition featured portraits of anti-trafficking leaders around the State in order to raise awareness of the reality of human trafficking in New York State, and to inspire New Yorkers to join the movement to end modern day slavery. An impressive array of New Yorkers working to end human trafficking were featured, including feminist leaders Gloria Steinem, Yasmin Hassan, Sonia Ossorio, Ted Bunch, and Norma Ramos; New York’s Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman; Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance; Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice; former NYS Superintendent of Banks Diana Taylor; and NYPD Police Chief Ray Kelly.

We would like to extend our thanks to our partners from the New York State Anti-trafficking Coalition for their effort to protect our most vulnerable children. We offer a special thanks to Dorchen Leidholdt and Emily Amick of Sanctuary for Families for working with us to ensure that child victims of commercial trafficking in New York receive critical services, not criminalization.
