Tech students stage slavery stand
As a cardboard drawing of Abraham Lincoln’s face watched over Centennial Plaza, Louisiana Tech University students gathered recently to raise awareness about slavery in today’s society.
Josh Norton, director of the event and the International Justice Mission leader, decided to bring the Stand for Freedom to Tech.
“Stand For Freedom is a nationwide event that we decided to get involved with after finding out that slavery was such an issue,” Norton said.
“We stand for 27 hours because there are 27 million slaves out there who need our help.”
