Relentless violence is an everyday reality for the nearly 30 million people trapped in slavery around the world. On Wednesday, April 9, for 24 hours on Courthouse Square in Scranton, area residents will “stand for freedom,” raising awareness, connecting with each other, and forging new paths to make a difference in this International Justice Mission-connected event.

Register online to stand for an hour or more at www.bbc.edu/events.

#standwithme, an impressive, expansive documentary that makes the brutal issue of modern-day slavery accessible, will be shown at Cinemark in Moosic on Thursday, April 10 at 7:30 p.m. Portland-based filmmaking studio Stillmotion’s movie introduces us to a 9-year-old who started a lemonade stand to help end child slavery and explores how we all can make a stand against it, too.
