About the Organization
Students Against Slavery is a student organization dedicated to educating, and organizing student activism against slavery in the world today. We seek to raise awareness on our campus and in the local community of the existence of slavery, and offer meaningful ways in which “everyday people” can help end modern day slavery. Our goals are very congruent with Drury University’s mission to cultivate spiritual sensibilities, ethical insight, and to liberate persons to participate responsibly in and contribute to a global community. Being aware of and taking action against slavery in our own country and in the world is an urgently needful contribution to the global society that will stretch and grow any individual’s spiritual sensibilities and sense of justice.The nature of this group is to welcome anyone, regardless of religion, race, culture, or creed to work to together to end a practice that is illegal virtually world-wide.
Students Against Slavery meets on the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month at 12:00 in Pearsons 217.
How to Join
One can become a member of Students Against Slavery by attending meetings, participating in awareness events, and a commitment to end all forms of human slavery/trafficking are the only requirements to joining this group.
