SCRANTON — University students traveled to Baltimore to meet with experts from Catholic Relief Services about issues such as human trafficking, refugees fleeing violence and the effects of climate change on the world’s poorest citizens.

Students then went Washington, D.C. to meet with their legislative representatives on Capitol Hill and ask for their support.

The group was among 120 students from 47 universities across the nation who will become CRS Student Ambassadors on their campuses next year. They will help educate and activate their fellow students on ways to become involved and make the world a better place.
