Ohio’s 10th annual human trafficking awareness day will be held this year on Feb. 28. The event provides an opportunity to hear from advocates around Ohio with the shared mission of ending human trafficking in Ohio. Each year, the event features a different focus. This year's focus is on the opioid crisis and how it impacts and elevates the risk of human trafficking in Ohio.
On March 27, OSBA participated in the Ohio Attorney General’s meeting Ideas for Our Future: Addressing childhood trauma to create positive outcomes. This was the fifth Attorney General-led meeting addressing the opioid epidemic in Ohio, but the first directly focusing on the epidemic’s impact on children and families.
