Fall 2013- Fall 2014 Events

Documentary Marathon November 2014

During the week of November 17th-20th, IJM at UAB hosted a documentary marathon, presenting four documentaries that touched on a different aspect of human trafficking both domestically and internationally. Having partnered with many departments on campus to offer attendance as extra credit, we experienced a great turnout!

Justice Week April 2014

Justice Week is IJM’s biggest annual event that involves five days of advocacy and education of human and sex trafficking. This year, we presented a visual, screened Jada Smith’s “Rape for Profit” documentary, hosted a Stand for Freedom and “Rave for Freedom.” The visual highlighted facts and images of forced labor involved in major corporation’s production, e.g. child labor involved in the harvest of cocoa used by major candy corporations, such as Mars, etc. “Rape for Profit” hones in on sex trafficking specifically in Seattle. “Stand for Freedom” offered students the opportunity to stand for an hour in order to raise money for national IJM. The last event of the week, the rave, allowed students to dance for freedom by paying a $1 entrance fee. The week was a great success, and we are indebted to the partnerships made with UAB faculty and administration that helped make this week such a success!

The ENDIT Movement has established a day of awareness that encourages people to stand up against human trafficking by forming teams and raising at least $7 per team member. IJM at UAB painted three huge backdrops and hung them up all over UAB’s campus for students to take pictures in front of and post to social media.
