Preventing Trafficking in Children

May 20, 2018 - May 23, 2018

Trafficking in persons remains a top security concern in Northeast Ohio, particularly the trafficking of minors. Five law enforcement, government officials, and civil society social services workers from Ukraine will be traveling to Cleveland to explore best practices in preventing trafficking of children. Visitors will examine effective models of law enforcement cooperation in stopping traffickers as well as meet with the organizations and health care providers that tend to the need of victims. Meetings and site visits to the Renee Jones Empowerment Center, U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Ohio, and the Cleveland Municipal Human Trafficking Docket, among others, will enhance cooperation for ending this transnational crime.

International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) Program

Each year, over 300 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through IVLP. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, these visitors have been identified by U.S. embassies as emerging leaders in their fields. Over 50 Nobel Laureates and 335 current or former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government are alumni of this program.

By connecting with foreign leaders we strengthen Northeast Ohio’s commercial, cultural, and educational ties with the rest of the world. For more information, contact Katie Ferman, Program Officer, at or click here. To get involved as a Citizen Diplomat, click here.
