EVENT DATE Apr 08, 2016

THE STORY:

On April 7-8, 2016, Slavery Ends Today, Connecticut College's anti-human trafficking Club, along with members of the campus community, will stand for 27 hours in order to raise awareness of the estimated 27-30 million people enslaved around the world today.

We hope you will consider making a donation in solidarity. Whether you choose to sponsor a member standing for all 27 hours throughout their meals, classes, and extra curricular activities ($27), or give whatever amount you can, we thank you. All money raised will be donated to a local anti-human trafficking organization, chosen by the club at the end of the year. Last year we donated to Love146 (based in Hartford, CT), an organization working to end the trafficking and exploitation of children in the US as well as abroad. *We realize that CrowdRise has a $10 minimum donation. However, we will be carrying collection jars while standing, so if you have a couple of dollars to donate, stop by Cro between 8am on April 7th and 11am on April 8th. Any amount is appreciated, even change [for change]!

Modern day slavery, as well as human trafficking, is a local and global issue. Individuals (regardless of gender, age, race, and/or nationality) are affected: here in Connecticut, across the United States, and around the world. Whether you are aware of it or not, it is very probably that modern slave labor plays some role in your every day life- be it the manufacturing of the clothes you wear or the food you eat. We want people to be aware, to question labor practices, and to stand up and stop these human rights violations.
