We lose 1,100 young children to sexual trafficking each year in Ohio. A new film seeks to shed light on this tragedy and put an end to this common form of modern-day slavery, but we need your help to do it. The film, Shadow on the Heartland, will help to educate the public, parents and at-risk youth about the real dangers and harsh reality of sexual trafficking. You can help with this effort by making a financial contribution toward the creation of this film. See the donor section on this website for the various ways you can contribute. We urge you, at the very least, to be a Freedom Key supporter for only $25.
