This committee tracks state and national human trafficking laws and identifies areas for improvement.

Victims of trafficking or those who become aware of a trafficking situation can get help by calling this number 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This committee operates a 24/7 human trafficking reporting hotline for Central Ohio.

Meets on an as-needed basis (see calendar).

This committee works on the preventative side of human trafficking by examining efforts to reduce the public desire for the sale of persons, both in the labor and sex industry.

The Demand Reduction Committee exists recognizing the prevalence and brutality of the human trafficking industry. In response, we work to decrease the demand through community education, specialized interventions and strategic partnerships.
