Ideas:
“  I just completed an article for the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy regarding the newly passed Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking act (SESTA - FOSTA) and Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act . I am currently working on a follow up to that article exploring the new face of trafficking in America: corporate interests. This paper examines the ability of some business interests to successfully oppose or modify even narrow anti-trafficking legislation if they perceive it to impede profits.  ”
