Join the REVOlution | May 15

REVO La Sierra Team 2010
There is nothing better for us than to see our very own students using their knowledge, skill, and abilities to make the world around them a better place. So we are pleased to announce that REVO is back! REVO, short for "revolution," was an amazing way last year for students, faculty and staff, and community members of La Sierra to utilize their talents to raise money for a great cause. Through an art show, concert, and fashion show, this student-led group was able to raise over $24,000 for an orphanage in Rwanda.

This year, REVO La Sierra has decided to pair with an International Justice Missions (IJM). IJM is a human rights agency that seeks to give justice, relief, and support to the victims of slavery, sexual exploitation, and violence. Not only does IJM seek to prosecute those who commit these heinous acts of exploitation, but it seeks to rehabilitate and support the victims of these crimes. Finally, IJM fights to make perpetrators accountable for their actions, as well as change the systems that allow trades like this to prosper in the hope of one day ending human trafficking. We will be focusing on the area of Southeast Asia, where human trafficking, especially the sex trade, is extremely prevalent.
