The Ohio campaign is part of America’s Future Project Defend & Protect Our Children (PDPC) nationwide initiative to build a grassroots community of informed Americans armed with the facts, knowledge, and tools to help end the war on children.

The Ohio Friday night summit begins at 6 p.m. with remarks by General Mike Flynn, America’s Future Board Chair, and a panel discussion moderated by Lara Logan, an award-winning investigative journalist on the Board of America’s Future, along with a presentation of a uniquely designed digital resource library of federal and Ohio laws and regulations governing child exploitation and trafficking and best practice strategies to effectively drive legislative action and policy development.

Summit panelists and presenters include Bazzel Baz, founder and president of the Association for the Recovery of Children (ARC); Tara Lee Rodas, HHS whistleblower; Tina Baz, ARC Human Trafficking Program Director; Lynz Piper-Loomis, actionvist, podcaster, overcomer, and author of I Am Silent No More; Daniel Duval, executive director of BRIDE Ministries; Alicia Hopper, paralegal, and attorneys Ben Moore and Alicia Kutzer.

The training programs on Saturday run from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and offer a diverse range of courses tailored to various professions and roles. These include seminars for healthcare professionals, parents and caring adults, first responders, real estate professionals, and overcomers. The curriculum also covers essential topics such as “Navigating the Emerging Threat of Sextortion” and “Artificial Intelligence and Media Manipulation,” ensuring that every participant gains relevant and valuable knowledge.
