Help us fight human trafficking in Ohio! Sign the petition

Keep the momentum going: Sign AAUW Ohio’s Petition in Support of HB 130!

An estimated 1,078 children in Ohio are involved in human trafficking each year, and Toledo is the 4th largest recruitment location in the country. Thousands of Ohio’s children are at risk. Let’s do our part to end this form of modern-day slavery by showing our support for Ohio’s End Demand Act (HB 130).

HB 130 increases protection for Ohio’s trafficking survivors, particularly minors and survivors with developmental disabilities. It also improves services for survivors, eases the burden of proof for prosecutors, and increases the punishment for traffickers and men who pay for sex with children.

Ohio’s End Demand Act (HB 130) had its second hearing in the Senate Criminal Justice Committee. It is up to us to keep the momentum going for this bill to become law.

Sign AAUW Ohio’s petition today in support of HB 130, to end the demand!

Thank You!
AAUW Ohio Action Network

    It is crucial to Pass House Bill 130 to deter those who would make money from trafficking in human lives.
