Also known as modern-day slavery, trafficking has become a major rights problem in Ohio and elsewhere. LWV Ohio adopted a state study of human trafficking at its convention in May 2011.
In 2012, Leagues across Ohio participated in a consensus process to form a League position on this issue. Consensus was reached, and the LWVO Board formally adopted a position on human trafficking last year.
