People Who Care, Berea College’s student-led, social justice community service program based out of CELTS, is working to raise awareness about human trafficking and modern-day slavery this month by participating in the END IT movement. END IT is a coalition of organizations who are fighting for freedom from human slavery and trafficking through awareness-raising, prevention, rescue, and restoration. As a part of People Who Care’s campaign to educate our local community, they have created a display at Hutchins Library, located near the vending area on the main floor.

Why? According to People Who Care representative Keisha Morgan:

There are around 27,000,000 people trapped in modern slavery around the world and lots of people do not know this problem still exists. It is our goal to educate students on campus about this issue. We would like to work together in constructing a library display to run through the remainder of January that showcases books, facts, and other information about human trafficking to help educate our campus.

Stop by the display to learn more about the problem of human slavery. Books and DVDs on display are available for check-out.
