After a restful spring break, students will come together with eyes closed and minds open for the sixth annual Blinded event and Justice Week.
Blinded, hosted by Baylor’s International Justice Mission and Student Government, will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. Monday, March 18, in the Barfield Drawing Room of the Bill Daniel Student Center.
Justice Week, a week of social justice awareness events, is coming to an end today with “Blankets on the Bowl” from 7 to 11 p.m. at the Bill Daniel Student Center Bowl.

There is some information that can never be unlearned. This is how Ron Soodalter, co-author of “The Slave Next Door: Human Trafficking and Slavery in America Today,” described the realization of slavery in America.
Within 48 hours of running away from home, one in three young girls are at risk for human trafficking. Slavery seems to be a forgotten struggle. But as members of Baylor’s International Justice Mission and other students discovered during their spring break mission trip in Houston, sex trafficking brings human slavery to a reality.
The Student Activities Charter Council has informed members of the Sexual Identity Forum, a group of Baylor students promoting discussion of homosexuality and other sexual preferences, that they will not recommend granting the forum a charter.
There won’t be classrooms or homework, but for seven Baylor students, education won’t end during spring break. Members of International Justice Mission, along with other students, will travel to Houston to learn how to combat human trafficking. Participants will work with legal experts and community agencies to learn more about this growing social injustice.
