WHY NORTHSTAR?

In the 1800s, American slaves followed the North Star to freedom, inspiring abolitionist Frederick Douglass to create The North Star newspaper, to unify & empower those fighting to end slavery. At IJM’s NorthStar Student Leadership Conference, it is our hope that you will find that same inspiration to lead your generation in our modern-day fight to end slavery. There are approximately 29.8 million slaves in our world today. More than at any other time in history. As college leaders, you are playing a critical role in this fight by waking up your campus to the fact that slavery still exists. By coming together as leaders, we believe that can and will change...for good.
