Cazenovia College Students Join CNY Freedom Makers
2012 Oct 31Students are frequently involved in the world outside the classroom, particularly when there is a chance to help make a difference in the world. Professor Laurie Selleck's "Protest and Propaganda" class at Cazenovia College joined with a local cause, CNY Freedom Makers, creating posters to raise awareness about modern day slavery, and raising funds for an anti-slavery effort in Manila, Philippines. In addition, they are bringing the campaign back to campus. Selleck's students submitted 12 posters, and of the seven posters accepted by CNY Freedom Makers, six were designed by Cazenovia College visual communications students, including Vin Halsey, Jessica Lacelle, Paul Roberts, Joshua Skibbee, Noelle Sippel and Kathryn Wheeler. The students were dismayed at the magnitude of the problem, and surprised that it isn't in the forefront of mainstream awareness.
