COLUMBUS – Today, State Rep. Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo) joined U.S. Senator Rob Portman, Congresswoman Joyce Beatty, the Central Ohio Rescue and Restore Coalition and the Ohio Dominican Sisters of Peace to discuss efforts to end human trafficking at the federal level.

During the roundtable, Senator Portman and Congresswoman Beatty provided an overview of the “Bringing Missing Children Home Act of 2014,” which improves law enforcement reporting and response procedures to cases of missing children. 

“I fully support legislation that will help us do a better job of finding Ohio’s missing children,” said Rep. Fedor. “I want to thank Senator Portman and Congresswoman Beatty for their efforts to improve the quality of information available to law enforcement in resolving missing children cases. Missing children are the most vulnerable to becoming victims of child sex trafficking and sexual exploitation.”

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 the End Demand Act, Sub. H.B. 130. In 2012, the General Assembly passed Rep. Fedor’s Safe Harbor Act – a victim centered bill aimed at providing protection, prosecution and prevention.
