For Justice Week, UAB’s International Justice Mission (IJM) Organization hosted the Stand for Freedom event in the RLC from 6pm- 12am. Students participated in creating signs to support the ending of modern day slavery.

It is important to realize that slavery still exists and the only way we can end modern day slavery is by taking a stance. Today, there is an estimated 29.8 million slaves in the world (150, 000 are present in the U.S.). Modern day slavery generates $32 billion/year, but it is possible to end this in 25 years if we refuse to fuel demand.

We can make a change and end modern slavery through education and awareness.
