“Everyone can agree that slavery is morally wrong, but they don’t realize it’s still happening now,” said International studies major and volunteer Sam Pavich. This event aims to change that; this 15-minute sojourn into the life of a modern slave is intended to enlighten. Put on by No More Injustice, a company founded by social work major Michelle Jacoby and human development and family studies major Kalista Consol, ENSLAVED depicts the brutality of human trafficking.

Please note there are references to physical, emotional and sexual abuse, foul language and war-zone simulations as part of this experience and age restrictions apply. Learn more at
