Free the Slaves Awareness Campaign

Free the Slaves-LoyNo (FTS) will be tabling during international week in an effort to raise awareness about the international slave trade which still exists. There will be a board set up for students to respond to questions as well as an anonymous comment box for students to ask questions. Such questions will include: What is different about the international slave trade today compared to when slavery was widely accepted? What products do westerners consume on a daily basis that are made by slave laborers? How do the demands of society effect the lives of slave laborers across the globe? At the end of international week, FTS will post answers to students' comments/questions as well as the comments on the board around campus.
