In January 2012, Dustin Hsu’s worldview forever changed after crossing paths with people from International Justice Mission, a human rights organization that rescues victims of violence, sexual exploitation and slavery. “Hearing stories of families working countless hours in brick factories and young girls routinely raped and sold for sex affected me like nothing before,” said Hsu, recalling the encounter at Passion, a Christian conference at the Georgia Dome for college students. Hsu went on to establish the International Justice Mission’s chapter at Georgia Tech where he is a senior majoring in industrial engineering. Earlier this month, he and other students stood for 27 straight hours as part of “Stand for Freedom,” a national student-led movement created by International Justice Mission to draw attention to the estimated 27 million people enslaved in the world today.
