is a week-long initiative March 25-29, 2012 at the University of Northern Iowa coordinated by Christian student organizations in partnership with the wider community. Freedom Week’s purpose is to create a movement of people committed to: 1) Bringing awareness of the injustices of modern-day slavery and 2) Seeking ways to restore justice locally and globally.
CAPSTONE EVENT: Thursday, March 29th at 8pm in Lang Hall Auditorium
We will have a dynamic guest speaker, York Moore, a modern-day abolitionist . He will speak on the the social, spiritual and economic forces behind modern-day slavery.
*FREE THE GIRLS: Help girls who have survived trafficking gain a living from selling used bras.
