    Human Trafficking Summit: Attorney General Dave Yost, who recently announced some legislative priorities regarding human trafficking (See Gongwer Ohio Report, November 6, 2019), has set a summit on the issue for Jan. 9 in Columbus.

    The daylong event at the Columbus Convention Center, 400 N. High St., will feature survivors sharing their experiences and experts discussing best practices. Multidisciplinary teams that have both helped victims and improved criminal case outcomes will share what they know.

    Survivors, advocates, law enforcement officers and community stakeholders are invited to join in the discussion.

    "Today's slave masters don't use iron chains," Mr. Yost said in a statement. "They use addiction, fraud and psychological manipulation, and those invisible chains hidden in the mind can be harder to break than iron links. So join me in kicking off the new year at this important summit to see what we can each do to free the victims of modern-day slavery."

    Registration for the summit is now open with a limited number of scholarships available. Note that continuing education credits have been applied for through the Counselor, Social Worker, Marriage and Family Therapist Board and the Supreme Court of Ohio.
