Human Trafficking - in Ohio?

According to the Ohio Attorney General's Human Trafficking Commission website: "Human trafficking is an estimated multi-billion dollar a year international enterprise that forces the most vulnerable among us into the horrors of modern-day slavery." Ohio is one of the top states in the U.S. where humans are bought and sold for sexual slavery and forced labor.

The Dayton Metro Library explores the reasons behind this surprising statistic and examines the response by state government and local organizations in a free program, "Human Trafficking - In Ohio?" The program will be held on Thursday, October 17, 6:30 p.m. in the Main Library auditorium, 215 E. Third Street, downtown.

Elizabeth Ranade-Janis, Anti-Trafficking Coordinator for the Ohio Department of Public Safety, and Melinda Sykes Haggerty, Director of Children's Initiatives for Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, will speak about what human trafficking looks like in Ohio and outline the policies that have been initiated to research the problem, target the perpetrators and help the victims.

Anthony N. Talbott will discuss local activities in the Miami Valley to combat trafficking and how individuals can get involved to make a difference. Talbott is Co-Founder & Chair of Abolition Ohio: The Rescue and Restore Coalition in the Miami Valley and a lecturer at the University of Dayton.

"Human trafficking is a terrible crime that happens here and around the world. But we can solve it," Talbott says. "Ohio is making great strides in our fight to combat trafficking so that survivors are empowered to rebuild their lives and experience freedom," adds Ranade-Janis.

The program is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the library at (937) 463-BOOK.
