Doma, an Ohio based non-profit that prevents human trafficking locally through education initiatives and survivor support, has responded to the community’s demand for more information by hosting a 1-day educational event known as Abolitionist U (Abo U) on Saturday July 20th. From 9am-5pm, participants will hear from Ohio’s leading experts on the topic of domestic sex trafficking, vulnerability and recruitment, preventative parenting techniques, and innovative solutions from local groups. The Abo U Project Coordinator at Doma, Keturah Scott, states: “Doma is hosting this interactive, educational weekend in response to the overwhelming questions the community posed after the recent and dramatic Cleveland rescues. We are encouraged to see that more and more people are taking notice that slavery does in fact exist in Ohio, in our communities, and on our streets. After celebrating the Cleveland rescues, it is crucial to continue our work to free the thousands of other women, men, and children who are enslaved. It is time to move beyond awareness into action.”
