4. Thankfully, Ohio just passed legislation...

...forbidding human trafficking. One of our local state reps, Teresa Fedor-D, from Toledo, was instrumental in convincing our Republican Governor Kasich to sign the Safe Harbor bill. She even got it through the Republican-controlled statehouse!

Kudos to her

"In terms of raw numbers of arrests, investigations, and rescues of children involved in the sex trade, the commission suggested that Toledo ranked fourth in the nation behind Miami, Portland, Ore., and Las Vegas. When adjusted for population, Toledo climbed to No. 1."

(Unfortunately, Toledo is strategically located at the confluence of I-75 going north and south, and the Ohio Turnpike going east and west.)

More on the bill itself, which has now been passed and signed by the Governor: http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/local/2012/05/23/bill-to-aid-victims-of-sex-labor-trafficking.html
