Mark your calendars: 2024 Human Trafficking Summit set for Aug. 7

It’s official! Ohio Attorney General Yost’s 2024 Human Trafficking Summit has been moved to August.

Survivors, social workers, victim advocates, police officers, lawyers, prosecutors and judges – please note Wednesday Aug. 7 on your calendars and plan to join us at the Hyatt Regency Columbus.

The 2024 edition of the summit will focus on the vital role that an integrated system of care – commonly called the “continuum of care” – plays in helping survivors achieve long-term healing on the “highway to hope.”

Additional details about the summit, previously presented in January, will be posted here as plans become firm. Please check back regularly.
