Rob Morris, co-founder and president of the non-profit organization Love146, will present an informative convo event at 10 a.m., Friday, Oct. 8 in LCVA 117.
Love146 is an organization whose mission is to abolish slavery and human trafficking through prevention and aftercare solutions. The organizations idea started in 2002 after the founders made a trip to Southeast Asia, and in one of the brothels filled with children a girl with the No. 146 pinned to her dress stared at them with hope. Because they were there as part of an investigation that would precede a raid, they couldnt help her. When the brothel was raided and the children who were being sold for sex were rescued, No. 146 was gone. They then went to restoration centers where they saw the children living happily and free, but they never found and never forgot No. 146. Love146 became a public organization in 2006, and it has ongoing work primarily in the United States, Asia and Europe.
We believe in the power of Love and its ability to affect sustainable change. Love is the foundation of our motivation, according to Love146.org, the organizations website.
Students who attend will learn about the realities of slavery and human trafficking as well as how they can help grow the abolition movement. Love146 offers jobs and internships as well.
