Senator Fedor recognized by OCHLA for commitment to Latino issues


Columbus: The Ohio Commission on Latino Affairs (OCHLA) recognized State Senator Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo) with the “Legislator Advocate” award during its 2010 statewide Legislative Visit Day on May 18, 2010.


“I am honored to receive the Ohio Commission on Hispanic/Latino Affairs ‘Legislator Advocate’ award,” said Fedor.  “I will continue to promote public policy that positively affects the Latino Community.”


OCHLA said of Fedor, “As a state Senator, Teresa Fedor has expended a tremendous amount of time, energy and effort into improving the lives of Latino Ohioans. Her work in the area of education, human trafficking, and advocating against local immigration measures has been sincerely appreciated by the Latino community all across Ohio.”

According to OCHLA, Fedor spent 16 years working in inner-city Toledo public schools before coming to the legislature.  She has a long-standing interest in promoting academic attainment for all children and protecting our most vulnerable young Ohioans—she sponsored, for example, “Día de los Niños,” a bill promoting literacy and education of children on April 30th every year.


According to OCHLA—through its Executive Director Lilleana Cavanaugh—Fedor is a champion on the issue of Human Trafficking, a problem that greatly affects vulnerable citizens, especially Latinos.  As Vice-Chair of the Trafficking in Persons Study Commission, she ensured the Latino community had a voice and a seat on the Commission. Her bill, Substitute Senate Bill 235, will create a stand-alone felony for trafficking in persons and is being considered by the Senate Criminal Justice Committee.


OCHLA is an organization that advises state government on issues affecting Hispanic Ohioans, connects the diverse Latino communities across the state, and builds the capacity of community organizations so they may better serve the fast growing Latino population of Ohio.


At its Legislative Visit Day, OCHLA, along with Cleveland’s Hispanic Roundtable and LULAC, welcomed community leaders at the State Capitol and the Riffe Building.
