Mission — To stir society’s conscience to action against all forms of trafficking and slavery.
AbolitionOhio is a partner in the Campaign to Rescue and Restore Victims of Human Trafficking launched by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services under the Trafficking Victims Protection Act.
AbolitionOhio was inspired by the Dayton Human Trafficking Accords conference, convened by the University of Dayton in November 2009. Its mission is guided by the conference’s final Declaration regarding society’s moral responsibility to abolish human trafficking and free slaves from their captivity.
AbolitionOhio is committed to the abolition of all forms of human trafficking – labor trafficking, sex trafficking, debt bondage and all other forms of modern-day slavery.
AbolitionOhio’s activities are principally concentrated in Ohio’s Miami Valley, but it also proactively collaborates with other national and state governmental, intergovernmental, and civil society organizations engaged in the global abolitionist movement.
We can abolish human trafficking and slavery, but only if we solemnly commit ourselves to that common purpose.
We must confront the global scourge of trafficking and slavery beginning in our own local communities.
We as individuals and all institutions of society have a moral responsibility to abolish all forms of trafficking and free slaves from their captivity.
