    Because We Were Slaves: Simon Deng and Modern Day Slavery

    As a child Simon Deng lived in the village of Tonga, a town subjected to frequent invasions by the Sudanese. After he and his family were forced into a refugee camp in Malkal, Simon was abducted by a man who sold him as a slave. He was able to escape his captors and has become an American citizen, working tirelessly as an activist, promoting awareness and lobbying for the end of slavery worldwide. Deng has
    recently embarked on a fact finding mission to Sudan and Darfur, bringing us the most recent report from this inhumane conflict.

    Come hear Simon Deng’s story.
