Earlier this month, the U.S. Marshals Service carried out the largest anti-human trafficking operation in Ohio state history and recovered 109 survivors across the state — 45 of which were children. According to Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost, the operation, which was named “Autumn Hope,” involved more than 50 agencies.

Yost noted the four main points for the operation: Rescuing victims of human trafficking and referring them to social services, recovering missing and exploited children, apprehending those seeking to have sex with a minor and arresting male johns seeking to buy sex, according to a press release from his office.

Since 2005, the U.S. Marshals Service says they have recovered more than 2,000 missing children.

Yost tells those watching the press conference Monday that everyone should care about this issue and quotes Martin Luther King Jr. by saying “a threat to justice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
