IJM @ CoHo on April 14

Around the world injustice abounds. Torture, property grabbing, slavery, sex trafficking and other forms of abuse and oppression affect millions of human beings on a daily basis. The statistics are staggering, the reports are horrifying, but we are not powerless to do something about it. The ancient writer Isaiah commands us to “Seek justice, help the oppressed, defend the cause of orphans, fight for the rights of widows.”

International Justice Mission was established to stand in the gap for victims when they are left without an advocate. Come hear Jamie McIntosh tell how IJM is providing relief for victims, holding perpetrators accountable, effecting structural change, and providing aftercare to victims. Find out what you can do to make a difference.

International Justice Mission Canada is a human rights agency that rescues victims of violence, sexual exploitation, slavery, and oppression.
