International Justice Mission

16 Apr

If you’ve read “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” (one of my personal favorites) or seen the movie, “Amazing Grace”, you’re probably already acquainted with the horrors of slavery.  What you may not know is that these horrors remain a reality for millions around the world who suffer injustice today.  Each year, nearly 32 billion dollars in profit are made through human trafficking.  Women and children are exploited in brothels while other families endure forced labor in brick kilns and manufacturing plants.  But you can make a difference!

For the last 15 years, International Justice Mission (IJM) has been fighting to end slavery and injustice by spreading awareness, training local law enforcement, and providing both legal defense and victim aftercare.  They have helped to free thousands held in bondage and advanced the cause of justice throughout the world.  To find out more about their accomplishments through the last 15 years and their vision for the next 15 years, click the following link:  Celebrating 15 Years of Justice.  After you view the video, you have the option to get involved in the mission by signing a petition to end slavery, committing to being a prayer partner, helping to raise funds, and educating your friends concerning the need to bring justice to the world’s poor!  So what are you waiting for?  Make a difference today!
