Humanitarian Solutions is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization playing a vital role in human trafficking education throughout the State of Ohio. We are distributing the award-winning documentary “Shadow on the Heartland” to show school-aged children the serious issue of human trafficking in our state. This documentary features many of Ohio’s most influential leaders, including Governor John Kasich and State Representative Teresa Fedor, and was applauded by activists and political leaders during a showing at the Annual Human Trafficking Awareness Day at the Columbus Statehouse.

To help us share this documentary with one million school children throughout the state, Humanitarian Solutions developed a “Sponsor a School” program that allows donors to cover the cost of a school viewing license. Donors can choose which school they would like to assist through their donation. Once the sponsorship is collected for a particular school, the school will receive its license and the documentary to share with its students. School officials can use the documentary to help educate students on what human trafficking is, how predators will try to manipulate them into being trafficked and how they can protect themselves from becoming victims of this crime. This documentary can be used to educate students on the potential dangers that exist right here in our state. Watch Documentary Trailer

Human trafficking is commonly thought to be a Third World country issue and not a problem that is taking place in our own community. The fact is, more than 1,000 young boys and girls are trafficked every year in the State of Ohio. The FBI considers the northern part of Ohio one of the top recruiting areas for underage prostitution. Toledo, Ohio is ranked fourth in the nation behind Miami, Portland and Las Vegas. In Ohio, 1 in 3 runaways gone for two weeks or longer are at a risk of being trafficked for sex. There are different ways a person can be pulled into human sexual trafficking, but the nightmare of it all is that it’s happening today, even to kids as young as 7 years old.

We need your support to make this documentary available to all students. Please consider sponsoring a school in your area and together let’s help put an end to human trafficking in Ohio.

Trafficking Film Premieres at Ohio Statehouse

Our documentary, www.shadowontheheartland.com , just premiered at the statehouse today as lawmakers, law enforcement officials, advocates and survivors from across the state and nation gathered for a day of discussion on ways to raise awareness and fight back against human trafficking in Ohio.

The 30-minute documentary starts with statistics: The average age of a human-trafficking victim in Ohio is 13; children as young as 9 are victimized. Gov. John Kasich then appears onscreen to say that the number of human-trafficking victims in the state each year could fill a large high school. “That’s more than 1,100 children every year being exploited in our communities, being snatched, blackmailed, drugged, violated and forced into hard labor or the sex trade,” he says. Donations from Ariel Corp., White Castle and the East Ohio Conference of the United Methodist Church helped get the project off the ground, and Meisse largely funded the remaining costs. Read more.
