THE INTERNATIONAL JUSTICE MISSION (IJM) IS COMING TO APPALACHIAN’S CAMPUS ON MARCH 16TH, 7:30PM, AT IG GREER AUDITORIUM!

As a former intern at IJM’s headquarters in Washington DC, I and the International Relations Association (IRA), will be hosting a speaker from IJM and a film entitled At the End of Slavery.

Narrated by actor Danny Glover, At the End of Slavery: The Battle for Justice in our Time takes you inside the violent and ugly business of modern-day slavery — the buying and selling of human beings — from the brothels of the Philippines to the brick kilns of India.

The night will start off with the film and end with questions and concerns from the audience. The speaker, Wayne Barnard, will also address how we as a campus can help with social justice issues and speak against the injustice that is Human Trafficking.
