MB Justice Club
The Justice Club is a student run organization formed to increase awareness of modern day injustices on a global scale. Our main focus is human trafficking, specifically the growing sex slavery business in and around Birmingham. We hope not only to raise awareness, but also bring about change by hosting fundraisers and donation drives to help victims who have escaped this business. All donations will go to the Wellhouse of Birmingham, a nonprofit dedicated to the rescue and recovery of women who are or have been sexually exploited. Each month we will focus on a different component of human trafficking. Members have the opportunity to express their individual views and passions on this subject through seminars held twice every month. It is up to us to end slavery once and for all.
