After starting her career as a lawyer and a sex crimes prosecutor (like SVU) in Brooklyn, she went on to work at nonprofits providing legal representation to survivors of sexual violence and sex trafficking. Today she is the Policy Director at a national nonprofit – World Without Exploitation (WorldWE), an advocacy organization focused on passing laws to help survivors of sex trafficking and educating the public about the harms of sex trafficking and prostitution, and how the Internet is facilitating sex trafficking and exploitation. In addition to her meaningful work, Becca loves ski trips with her family (despite her fear of skiing=)), popcorn, coffee, and time at the beach. In her free time, she helps run charity shopping events as part of a company she founded called No Stone Unturned, and her personal heroes are Gloria Steinem and Ashley Judd. Becca is a truly a gem of a person working to drive meaningful change in this world; thank you Becca!
