Trafficked: Harold’s Story

series art designed by Kayla Freeman-Haynes

While state leaders have put an emphasis on fighting human trafficking in Ohio, one form of the crime, labor trafficking, continues to get less attention from media and law enforcement. In fiscal year 2020, less than 4 percent of federal trafficking convictions focused on labor trafficking, according to the U.S. Department of State. In the third episode of WYSO’s Trafficked, reporter Leila Goldstein looks at how labor trafficking gets left out of the conversation.

While working at the station Leila Goldstein has covered the economic effects of grocery cooperatives, police reform efforts in Dayton and the local impact of the coronavirus pandemic on hiring trends, telehealth and public parks. She also reported Trafficked, a four part series on misinformation and human trafficking in Ohio.
