Students stand in quad for 27 hours to fight sex trafficking

“A lot of people think that since we’re in the U.S. and in the 21st century, slave trafficking isn’t an issue,” Todd said. “But, in fact, it is still very prevalent. It’s just something that people aren’t aware of because so much of it happens under the table.”

“Standing against slave trafficking has become sort of a trendy social movement — it’s a thing for people to be involved in anti-human trafficking and social justice.”

Junior Hollis Dameron, a participant in STAND 4 Freedom, led a Zumba class during the first hour of the event.

“For me, it seems like I could do a lot more because an hour of my time is so insignificant to what these people go through,” Dameron said. “Giving up an hour of my time is just something small that I can do to help.”
