About the Abolition Ohio Speakers Bureau

Abolition Ohio is dedicated to the abolition of all forms of human trafficking - labor trafficking, sex trafficking and all other forms of modern day slavery. The purpose of the Abolition Ohio Speakers Bureau is to raise awareness of human trafficking in the Miami Valley community. The Speakers Bureau wants to increase the Miami Valley community’s capacity to identify and respond to trafficking situations by educating the public through Human Trafficking Workshop Facilitators who are trained to deliver presentations to audiences such as civic groups, faith groups, high schools, businesses, social services, and medical providers. Abolition Ohio Speakers Bureau members are certified to give state-mandated trainings to licensed cosmetologists.
