OVERVIEW
Voice of Justice, a student organization at Huntingdon College, will hold a fundraising event on March 6 and 7 to raise money and awareness for the fight against modern day slavery. Our event, Stand For Freedom, will benefit the International Justice Mission, headquartered in Washington, D.C. International Justice Mission is a human rights agency that brings rescue to victims of slavery, sexual exploitation and other forms of violent oppressions. IJM’s lawyers, investigators, and aftercare professionals work with local governments in 13 countries to rescue victims of violent abuse and ensure long-term care, prosecute their perpetrators under local laws, and transform public justice systems to protect entire communities. IJM partners with hundreds of colleges all over the country to raise awareness about this world-wide issue of human trafficking. Throughout March 5-15, over 400 campus chapters will be hosting Stand For Freedom events around the nation. Learn more about these events by visiting www.ijm.org/stand.
Huntingdon College’s Stand For Freedom event will begin at 9 AM on March 6 and end at noon on March 7. Students will spend these 27 hours standing on the steps of Pratt Hall in an attempt to raise $2700 for IJM. We are asking sponsors to donate money to our fundraiser online at https://www.ijmfreedommaker.org/campaign/965/Huntingdon-College-Stand-For-Freedom/. We are also looking for restaurants and businesses to donate snacks or meals to our students who will be standing for freedom throughout the 27 hours. At 11 AM on March 7, we invite all of our sponsors and supporters to the steps of Pratt Hall to celebrate the 27th and final hour. Please join with us in this effort to end modern day slavery. Montgomery, Alabama will Stand For Freedom together!
