Speak out on Convention location: Take the survey

2014 August 6

surveyThe AAUW Ohio Board is considering centralizing the Annual Equity Day & State Convention to a Columbus area location year after year. In other words, the event location would not move from region to region.

Please keep in mind that the hosts of the Annual State Convention would continue to cycle around to all the districts (Central, Northeast, Northwest, Southeast, Southwest). The Convention Chair and the participating branches would change every year. The only component remaining the same would be the hotel location

Please take some time to complete the survey, as well as to share it with all of your branch members. TAKE THE SURVEY

State Spotlight: Ohio

Governor Signs Law to Crack Down on Sex Trafficking
On Friday, Ohio Governor John Kasich signed into law legislation that would crack down on sex traffickers. The new law, which was passed unanimously by the Ohio Legislature, increases the penalty of buying sex from a minor to a fifth-degree felony from a misdemeanor. The harsher penalty aims to deter the state’s growing problem, as an estimated 1,078 Ohio children are victims of trafficking each year. Congratulations to AAUW of Ohio members who organized to make this law a reality.

Reposted from Washington Update, an internal communication for public policy leaders and members of the American Association of University Women (AAUW).

Help us fight human trafficking in Ohio! Sign the petition

2014 May 14

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!
