Isa and Common Cal learn about SAS…Students Against Slavery that is. Featured guests of A Muslim and A Catholic Wake Up In ‘Merica are Kelsey Friberg and Jessica Lynn Axe both members of Students Against Slavery at Central Michigan University.
The Mission of SAS: Students Against Slavery is a Registered Student Organization with the vision of fostering public awareness of the issue of human trafficking. Our mission is to work with fellow Central Michigan University students to better inform the campus community of the current conditions of human trafficking in its many forms, both domestically and internationally, with the goal of improving the overall condition of modern-day slavery. Forms of modern day slavery include: sex slavery, forced labor, forced marriage, child soldiers, etc.
Kelsey is the president and founder of Students Against Slavery. She currently interns at the Michigan Commission on Human Trafficking within the Department of Attorney General on Capital Hill in Lansing. Subcommittees for the Commission include training and education, data collection, funding and resources, policy and legislation, victim services, and public awareness – each of which Kelsey works with closely.
