End Slavery Tennessee announced this week the addition of Marjorie Quin, recognized nationally as an expert in human trafficking policy, laws and enforcement. Quin is the retired Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Assistant Special Agent In Charge who was responsible for leading state efforts to fight human trafficking. Current CEO Derri Smith will move from the role of CEO to an active role as “Founder” and Quin will step into the CEO position to run day-to-day operations, effective June 1. Smith founded the local effort 10 years ago to raise awareness of human trafficking and provide a comprehensive system of care for local survivors. The agency now cares for over 200 survivors per year, providing intensive case management, housing, mental health therapy, transportation, work experience, basic needs, support groups in a survivor community and other services.
