Project description: Human trafficking is a horrific form of abuse that takes away a person’s freedom and dignity. Individuals with developmental disabilities may be more likely to be used by traffickers. This project will develop a White Paper to provide the Ohio DD Council with information on how people with disabilities, including people of color, are being used or abused by human traffickers and how Council can help stop this negative behavior against people with developmental disabilities.
