Rowan College at Burlington County presents Zumba class at Mt. Laurel YMCA in observance of Human Rights Day


On Thursday, Dec. 10, Human Rights Day, Rowan College at Burlington County psychology, sociology and Educational Opportunity Fund students are presenting “Get Moving to End Human Trafficking,” a Zumba class at the YMCA in Mt. Laurel to benefit victims of human trafficking.

Members of the community can participate in a free, feel-good Zumba fitness class at the Mt. Laurel YMCA, 59 Centerton Road, in exchange for a donation of new winter clothing apparel like sweatshirts, leggings, and socks to go to victims of human trafficking.

The class will be taught by RCBC Psychology Coordinator and Lecturer Syreeta Washington and adjunct faculty member Jennifer Ferrell, who are also licensed Zumba instructors. It will be held from 1 to 2 p.m. in Studio B. Capacity is limited to 35. Participants will be asked to sign a photo release form at the front desk.

Human Rights Day commemorates the day the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. The International Bill of Human Rights sets out the civil, political, cultural, economic, and social rights that are the birth right of all human beings.
