Not My Life
Thanks to everyone who came to Bailey Library's human trafficking awareness event to see the 2 showings of the film, Not My Life, on January 30. Attendance for both exceeded our expectations. Special thanks to our host, Jane Smith, for making us aware of this problem all around us, and whose dedication to this cause is inspiring.
We learned that human trafficking is everywhere.  Statistics show in the U.S. there have been cases reported in all 50 states.  Victims of modern slavery can be children or adults, U.S. citizens or foreign nationals, male or female.  It is a world-wide problem that must be stopped.
All of us are touched by modern slavery every day--the food we eat, the products we buy and the consumer items we use on a daily basis probably were produced or touched by those held in involuntary servitude. 
Take a stand.  Right here.  Right now.  Today.  Visit to see how your consumer choices impact global slavery.  Then contact Dr. Cindy LaCom ( to express your interest in joining an on-campus organization to raise awareness and combat child labor, sexual exploitation of women and children, involuntary servitude, and other forms of human trafficking. 
Let's make a difference.
