Concert with a cause

What do a rock concert, glow sticks and enslaved people have in common?

 

The Rock show hosted by IJM that will be happening on November 20 at 9 p.m. in the dining commons.

 

The International Justice Mission would like to welcome students to partake in their mission of bringing justice to the world.

    

Admission is $2 and the featured acts will be Broadcast Hearts and The Filthy 42’s along with many others.

 

“All of the proceed go to IJM,” said Avery Bazan, on-campus activities coordinator for IJM.

 

The IJM headquarters is in Washington, D.C., Eastern is just one of many schools and organizations that participates in this justice mission.

 

This event is to bring awareness and raise money for the cause. They will also be showing a short film to highlight the activities of IJM.

 

Liberty in the United States is a common occurrence since the ratification of the 13th Amendment in 1865, the abolition of slavery. We enjoy the luxury of knowing that we cannot legally be enslaved to another human being without our own consent.

 

Unfortunately, that is not the case for many other countries and IJM has decided to answer the call of those crying out for help.

 

In partnership with lawyers and other lobbyists, they prosecute those who perpetuate slavery through trafficking and prostitution.

 

The International Justice Mission at Eastern University would like to offer this opportunity for students to partake in a good time with music and fun, while also taking part in bringing justice to people in at least 14 countries around the world.
