In Conversation with Elizabeth Fisher Good of The Foundation United

BrandStory

In the October 2022 edition of SRQ Magazine, we interviewed Elizabeth Fisher Good, CEO/Founder of The Foundation United as part of our In Conversation feature in which she discussed her foundation’s work in eradicating sexual abuse and exploitation locally and globally. Below is an excerpt published in the magazine in which she shares her insights with SRQ readers.

It feels like the issue of sex trafficking and sex abuse has become more public. That people have become more publicly aware of it due to high profile situations like Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell, R Kelly. 

I could tell you for the last 12 years, I've been in the New York Times, Chicago Tribune. I've been on television, radio, Fox News…practically screaming it and finally, like you said, they're hearing it a little bit. Because we had Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell. But, what happened then? It still was buried in a week. It's very, very interesting how few people care. I think you have the victims' side of it and those people that were abused, care. And then, you have the fact that, I think the stat now is up to 70% of men or women, will consume pornography as a form of sex trafficking. Every time we have a trafficking ring bust, and there's a pastor in it, a teacher in it, a father in it, they always say, "I don't know how I got here. I never would've bought a child." But, it's a progressive addiction. And, the research is telling us that it is rewiring our children's neural pathways. They are being rewired to systemically not be capable of forming intimacy. It's such a different world. So, I think we're finally getting a little bit of attention.
