COLUMBUS – State Rep. Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo) was pleased to learn of the $49,356 dollar grant awarded by the Ohio Attorney General’s Office to the Cincinnati Salvation Army earlier this week. The money will be used to continue a 24-hour human trafficking hotline, a case management program, as well as aide in the establishment of a program to get victims the resources and tools needed to escape.

“I’d like to congratulate the Cincinnati Salvation Army on their recent award,” said Rep. Fedor. “Increasing awareness and providing resources to victims is a critical step in breaking the cycle of human trafficking. We must also continue to work hard on our efforts to develop and implement effective public policy.”

For the past eight years, Rep. Fedor has been a leading advocate in the fight against human trafficking, and is now urging lawmakers to pass Sub. H.B. 130, the End Demand Act. In 2012, the General Assembly passed Rep. Fedor’s sponsored, Safe Harbor Act – a victim centered bill aimed at providing protection, prosecution and prevention.
