Senator Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo), Representative Tavia Galonski (D-Akron), and Senator Stephanie Kunze (R-Columbus)host the 11th Annual Human Trafficking Awareness Day at the Ohio Statehouse.
This event brings together advocates from around the state with one mission: ending human trafficking in all forms.
