Editor’s Pick

By Nicole Wroten

A new multimedia exhibit created in conjunction with the University of Dayton is on display at the Dayton International Peace Museum at 208 W. Monument Ave. The exhibit examines the complex facts of human trafficking, entitled “Under Our Noses: Modern Day Slavery and What You Can Do About It.” The exhibit is free and runs through the end of February.  The Dayton International Peace Museum is the only peace museum in the U.S. Visitors will experience an eye-opening introduction into the world of human-trafficking, both abroad and in the U.S.  Former Gov. Ted Strickland signed Ohio Senate Bill 235 into law at the end of December 2010. Previously, Ohio was one of only five states without such a law, which strengthens Ohio’s criminal code to make trafficking humans an offense punishable by up to eight years in prison. The museum’s hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
