Abolition Ohio Speakers Bureau

The Speakers Bureau was created in order to raise awareness about human trafficking in the Miami Valley Community. We want members of the community to be able to identify and respond to trafficking by educating the public through Human Trafficking Workshops.

The speakers are trained and certified to deliver presentations/trainings to audiences such as civic groups, faith groups, high schools, businesses, and social services. Our speakers are also certified to give state-mandated trainings to licensed cosmetologists.
