Human Trafficking In Our Backyard! 

Emily Fishback, Partnership and Mobilization Manager for IN OUR BACKYARD will be speaking about the groups work against human trafficking.

Emily Fishback is the new Partnership and Mobilization Manager for IN OUR BACKYARD–a local organization in the fight against human trafficking. Emily came on board in November of 2019 and has been working to develop relationships with people in the community who are interested in the mission of IOB. When not at work, Emily enjoys spending time with her husband, two daughters, and two dogs. Emily has yet to find an outdoor activity she doesn’t enjoy but if she’s inside she enjoys the company of a good book.

All people are empowered to live in freedom Mission: Linking arms across America in the fight against human trafficking. In Our Backyard (IOB) focuses on ending the sex and labor trafficking of adults, and youths taking place right here in the United States. IOB works to educate the public, raising awareness and generating concern regarding this critical issue. The Organization also provides aid to victims, and provides a lead role in training public officials. Human Trafficking, in several forms, is proliferating right here in America’s “backyard” As long as Human Trafficking occurs, IOB will be working toward the day when human enslavement no longer exists in the United States.
