July 9, 2014 - Cooley Law School’s Center for Ethics, Service, and Professionalism coordinated a volunteer work day event at Selah Freedom on June 28. Selah Freedom is an organization that exists to confront through advocacy the issue of sex trafficking and exploitation. The organization provides training and restorative services, brings awareness to the issue of sex trafficking, and provides a safe place for survivors to heal.

Tampa Bay students gathered with Cooley Law School Professor Stevie Swanson, who teaches a course on Slavery and Human Trafficking, to clean a new home Selah Freedom recently acquired. Swanson and the students gathered cleaning supplies and spent the day preparing the home for the survivors.
