An estimated 5.5 million children have been abducted, sold, or forced into slavery and around 21 million people worldwide are considered victims of modern-day slavery. In an effort to bring awareness to the global tragedy of human trafficking and empower members of the community to stand against it, the Gardner-Webb University club “Release the Captives” will host its annual Human Trafficking Awareness Week Feb. 20-25, featuring a range of events highlighting the issue. Planned by students under the guidance of club advisor Dr. Joseph Moore, GWU Assistant Professor of History and Special Assistant to the President for Academic Enhancement, several activities are scheduled to take place throughout the week.
