Ohio Human Trafficking Task Force

ANDY CHOW

Hundreds of people gathered in Columbus Thursday to discuss the most pressing issues related to human trafficking in Ohio. 

Advocates, law enforcement, attorneys and human trafficking survivors filled the Ohio Statehouse atrium for the 10th Annual Human Trafficking Awareness conference.

State Senator Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo) started the event with just a few dozen people. Now more than 400 attend.
