International Justice Mission’s (IJM) student chapter at the University of Central Missouri (UCM) will host their debut event “Fashioned for Freedom” in the Elliot Union Ballroom on Wednesday, Nov. 13 from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. to raise awareness about human trafficking and the slave labor trade. 

What if the clothes we wore were made by slaves in a developing nation? The UCM/IJM chapter will showcase certain clothing brands to not only address this issue, but to also promote “conflict free” outfit choices.

For example, according to free2work.org, companies like American Eagle are less likely to use slave labor trade to obtain certain cottons because of established corporate policies. However, apparel brands like Aeropostale are more likely to purchase inexpensive cottons and fabrics, due to the lack of institutional regulations.

If you are interested in attending UCM/IJM’s “Fashioned for Freedom” event or if you want to learn more about this issue, visit their event page on Facebook or follow their Twitter hashtag #FashionedForFreedom.
