Human trafficking talk at library

The League of Women Voters of the Perrysburg Area is bringing a discussion on human trafficking to town Tuesday evening.

State Rep. Teresa Fedor (D., Toledo), legislative sponsor of two Ohio human-trafficking laws, will lead the discussion at the Way Public Library starting at 7 p.m. The program is free and open to the public.

Ms. Fedor sits on the Human Trafficking Commission as chairman of its legislative and legal subcommittee.

Legislation she sponsored, enacted in 2009, created a penalty enhancement for human trafficking and created a task force to study the problem in Ohio. Human trafficking in 2010 became a stand-alone, second-degree felony.

In 2012, she sponsored the Safe Harbor Act, which established harsher penalties for the solicitation of minors.

The library also will show the film Blade Runner at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Mercy Family Activity Center, with a book-club discussion afterward. Admission and refreshments are free of charge, no registration is required, and copies of the book upon which the film was based will be available for checkout.
