Video to spread human trafficking awareness

      Trafficking Film Premieres at Ohio Statehouse

      The 30-minute documentary starts with statistics: The average age of a human-trafficking victim in Ohio is 13; children as young as 9 are victimized. Gov. John Kasich then appears onscreen to say that the number of human-trafficking victims in the state each year could fill a large high school. “That’s more than 1,100 children every year being exploited in our communities, being snatched, blackmailed, drugged, violated and forced into hard labor or the sex trade,” he says. Donations from Ariel Corp., White Castle and the East Ohio Conference of the United Methodist Church helped get the project off the ground, and Meisse largely funded the remaining costs. Read more.
